Milkweed and Michigan Memories


Debby Ray at My Favorite Things posted another set of photos that I just had to share.  These are milkweed seed pods which are very nostalgic for me since I lived for some years in Michigan where milkweed grows.  The silken parachuted seeds are so pretty in late autumn as they burst from their husky prisons, and Debby caught them beautifully in all their short-lived glory!

Magnificent Milkweed


  1. I do appreciate your kind words and your wanting to share my photo! I love the way you described them..."as they burst from their husky prisons". Blessings to you and may you have a good week!

    1. Thank you, Debby. I thought the photos were exceptional. It's so easy to miss the beauties of the "ugly" seasons - late fall, late winter and sometimes late summer. I like the fact that you "see" these things. :-)
