Walking in my neighborhood these days, I see a lot of seeds and pods. Nature’s last efforts at abundance before Winter sneaks in and puts the world to sleep.
I’m in Ohio so I have to share a buckeye. Is this a pod or a nut? The one I found had a big buckeye and a little batch of “baby” buckeyes snuggled up together. Squirrel celebration time!
If you live in New England or the Midwest, I bet you could find most of these same plants and trees in your neighborhood. Take someone you love on a Nature walk hunting for pods and seeds, flowers and berries. If you find something so cool you want to share, take a picture and post it on The World Famous April Eight Facebook page. You know me well enough now to know that I would love to see what you found.
My friend Carrie has a lovely song, Leaves Don’t Drop They Just Let Go, that speaks a bit to seeds and pods. We have a great little recording of my daughter singing along to it.
