Milkweed

     While on a walk Saturday I found this pod of milkweed plant seeds.  I don't recall ever seeing one intact out of the pod shell.  It looks a bit like a pine cone.  The seed fibers are very silky and soft! 
     I put the pod on a shelf outside my front door.  When I walked out yesterday I discovered that the pod had popped open.  In its place was a large, fluffy ball of milkweed seeds.  Very interesting....I did not know the pods popped open.
