More Hints for What is It?

So far, no one has guessed what plant this seed pod came from, so I’m showing a photo of just the seeds up close.  Can anyone guess what plant this is?  I promise I’ll give the answer tomorrow. Or today if someone guesses it.

What is it? What can you see in it?
Before I tell you, I’d like to hear your ideas about what it is.

(You should be able to click on the photo to enlarge it.)

Conundrum II

Allenda asked for another conundrum and at 3 a.m., rather than sleep, I decided to attempt another one.  Here it is. I’ve given the answer at the very end of the comments, so those of you who still want to guess won’t receive any spoilers.  Go ahead and guess in comments if you wish because there are enough comments that it won’t spoil it for anyone else now unless they choose to know.

Conundrum II

To hear of it, you’d think it’s made
to come to Louie Armstrong’s aid.
Yet it plays no music, surprisingly­­––
the lips not where it’s meant to be.

It has a tongue that does not talk.
Sounds like it should, but does not walk.
Although it helps out one that does,
it never leaves the room because

it has no means of a conveyance,
keeps your frustration in abeyance
so you can walk both tall and proud
though for itself, it’s not allowed.

What is it?

What is It?

This is, obviously, the inside of a flower.  I’ll give a hint.  I had to get down on my knees and shoot up into the flower.  Want to give a guess in comments?  I’ll give an answer and show a picture of the flower in my next post.

Version 2
This is actually the topper of my friends Joan and Michael’s tree.  I didn’t have one this year as I’m going to Phoenix for Christmas.  Here are some other shots from their tree:

I took these pictures in my garden yesterday, before the rain.

This strange object that looks like a meteorite or piece of carved Cinnabar is actually a dahlia. I just edited and edited until this was the end result.. It is rather beautiful, I think, so I'm including it. I think it looks like two hooded women standing back-to-back.

This strange object that looks like a meteorite or piece of carved Cinnabar is actually a dahlia. I just edited and edited , using different filters and tools until this was the result. It is rather beautiful, I think, so I’m including it. I think it looks like two hooded women standing back-to-back. If you look closely, you can see the stamens in the center toward the top.  They also look like the impression of a turtle.
