A treasure discovered beneath the rhododendron, nested in a bed of spent purple blossoms —
The shell that remains from a squash I grew last summer, so like a broken egg.

The curled tendrils of last summer.
Shell within a shell: snail within a squash.

Shell exterior.

The backside with its lovely concentric water marks, like sedimentary layers on a cutaway hillside.
