Wednesday Explorers Club ~ leaving home

There comes a time when seeds are ready to leave home and head off on their own adventures. When milkweed pods unzip and open, the seeds take to the sky on silken parachutes. Bean pods snap open and pop their seeds out. Apple seeds have a different journey...

Grab your nature journal and a pencil and draw sketches of the seeds you find in your neighborhood.


  1. I always thought milkweed pods were some of the coolest things in nature. Thanks for the beautiful photo.

    1. I love the way the seeds are packed in so tight - and then they have these wonderful silk "parachutes" and they drift on the wind... wonders of nature!
