Milkweed


I have always had a fondness for seed pods, and the milkweed is my all time favorite.


I think their is something so exquitely beautiful about its rough exterior...


that splits wide open...


sending out fragile seeds of hope on white wisps of clouds...

Thanks to all who have been sending such lovely good wishes to Molasses and me. Thanks to Bascom for the beautiful prayer and for telling me about the Jewish renaming ceremony tradition. And thanks to Cinda for the lovely St. Francis charm, which Mo is happily and gratefully wearing. (Mo says thanks to Miss Kitty for sharing!)

we don't have milkweed here, it looks like an incredible plant and I love your photos of it
: )

I like that last photo especially... it looks like you caught the seeds as they're blowing away.

Hey Harriet said...

There's no milkweed over here that I'm aware of. Plenty of other weeds. None as nice as this one though!

I LOVE all those photos!

Beautiful photos. I love that style of prints.

Ah, TTV after my own heart. Of course we don't have milkweed in this region. I will have to live vicariously through your photos. ;o)

MIlkweed is definitely one of those "don't judge a book by its cover" things. I am happy to see you playing with your camera! Looks like it's taking you on some keen adventures.

Victoria said...

So far the adventure has only been as far as the edge of the field right behind my house, but I would love to go over to the nearest nature preserve and do some shooting. It's a soothing distraction for me, that's for sure.
