Mosies

Every day may not be good
But there's something good in every day.

Like this milkweed pod~

They take over the garden and
spread their little unwanted seeds everywhere

But they are so fun to open up and throw into the wind.

Shauna used to call these seeds "Mosies" when she was a baby.
And once she said it~ it was true.

Your photo makes me want to grab some and throw them to the wind and watch them sail! I don't think I've ever seen a milkweed pod before, Chas, but they are very, very tempting Mosies. ;-)

XO,

Gorgeous capture Chas ! One of my favourite 'weeds'. Ours have been distributed by the wind now, but I did capture some when they were glistening in the sun. Nice memory of Shauna naming them - I hope things have been going a little better since the Hawaii trip !

Spent several days last week shooting milkweed. It is such a wonderful subject!! Unfortunately, it was also a very windy week :-( but I did end up getting a couple okay ones. This one is just fantastic!
