Milkweed Seeds

DSC03764 DSC03766It was noticeably dry and windy day by Becky's Garden, when we spotted a silvery fluff coming out of milkweed pods. The seeds inside were lined up in beautiful patterns - resembled fish scale to me - awaiting to fly with the November wind. Maybe the ground is still moist to land and germinate. Children were eager to send milkweed seeds off for a great flight. Some seeds were brought back to preschool playground. Cosmo wanted more seeds, but the pod we picked was empty. Those seeds had already migrated. We however discovered that inside the "purse" there was a very soft membrane ? that perhaps the seeds were attached to (like a umbilical cord?).  We also sent get well soon wishes to Ginger along with the travel safe wishes for the seeds.
