    No, there is nothing glorious about these objects. In fact, I think they are down right ugly.

    It looks like the seed pods of Gloriosa rothschildiana. Joe

    Also called the Chilean Glory Vine.

    I quite like the pods, they look like fat peas.

    Carol,
    This one has overwintered without protection on USDA Sone 8a. But it would be a bit of a stretch to imagine that it will grow where you are gardening - Mars!
