Milkweed Pod and Nut-Like Rose Hips

This blown milkweed pod was all that was left of a patch of last summer's orange flowers.  Nearby in the herb garden were large, nut-like rose hips bursting open to show their orangey seeds.  I was so surprised to see how big these rose seeds are, always thought rose seeds were minuscule.


  1. oh my lord these are delicious! you know hoe wonderful milkweed is, at least in my world. sigh. beautiful plants here...

    1. Milkweeds are beautiful here, too, and sadly growing increasingly rare. This little patch was growing down on the archaeological site on campus.
