Florida Beans

My friend Connie went to her home state of Florida for a family visit and spent some quality time on the beach looking for sea beans.

These are the finds - some are old standbys and some new ones for the collection.

This one is yet unidentified. It looks like a flower or a thorn.

These are seeds from a coin plant - a first for me. These are common in Florida but not so much along the Texas beaches.

There were three red mangrove seeds but this is the first twisted one I have seen.

This is the freshest tropical almond I have seen. It even has some of the dark husk intact.

This picture shows tropical almonds in various stages of decomposition.

Thanks Connie for the new beans!
