About Today’s Photo:

I’ve always been somewhat captivated by milkweed. From its tight buds in spring, to its cluster of intricate flowers in summerz, to its pods busting in fall, it’s an interesting and important native plant. This pod in our front field was in its final stage spilling its seeds to the wind.
