Seeds a Poppin'

Over the weekend, I was out and about with my youngest daughter and decided to take the long and scenic way home.While driving by the marshes, out of the corner of my eye I spotted the most wonderful display of seedy goodness . There, on the edge of parking lot that butts up against a wild and brambly area, stood a glorious Milkweed plant in all of its fluffy podded glory!! I was definitely lucky enough to go by on that day as one more and the pods would have completely exploded, spilling their wispy seeds into oblivion. I took only one pod, and now I can't wait until I can clear out an area to scatter the seeds about. If they decide to take, the butterflies are going to have a great time in my backyard next Summer.
