Milkweed once more

The milkweed pods have ripened and are spilling their seed for next year's crop.  The meadow is filled with them and looks almost snow-covered.   We have come full cycle with the milkweed since last spring when the real melting snow revealed a ground covered with opened pods and I posted my first milkweed blog.

  3. Love that plant, looking forward to real snow myself :)
    M is for me...

  4. «Louis» was certain your "M" post would be about Marijuana - but then he remembered that you live in Michigan, not Mendocino County California...

    (M. Scélérat, éditeur à «Louis»: "No wonder your Middle name is "Maytag" - you are always agitating someone!)

  5. You are taking some really cool photos. I only wish that they were larger! Have a great day! - Rachel

  6. It does look like snow, or cotton....lovely.

  7. It may not be wanted, but it makes for a nice macro shot.

  8. I've been studying seeds with 1/2 grade and of course, the milkweed is a great one for them to explore.

    Nice shot. Thank you for your comment on my art posts for ABC Wed. The meme has really inspired me and I love all the comments from other participants. Thank you!
