Waiting for the wind

In this closer look at the milkweed pod I posted the other day, the silk bedecked seeds seem to be peeking out of their pod in anticipation of wind disbursing them.

Never sleeps…

Moneywort and rusting metal…

In honor of Neil Young’s birthday (and my own!) I thought I’d entitle this photo appropriately… Moneywort fringing to the ginge on rusting metal along Fargo Brook.

Bursting

I’ve always been somewhat captivated by milkweed. From its tight buds in spring, to its cluster of intricate flowers in summer, to its pods busting in fall, it’s an interesting and important native plant. Its importance as a food source for Monarch butterflies is well known. This pod in our front field was in its final stage spilling its seeds to the wind.
