  1. I love seed pods. What frustrates me is finding only the seeds, and not having a clue what plant they belong to. Someone should write a book that identifies flowers by their seeds, rather than their flowers!

  2. Seeds, pods, flowers and related subjects are murky waters for me and it does not help my blog at all. Most readers are expecting at least the name of the flower; but I have a lot of difficulty finding their names. Usually what I do is to briefly describe the flower—mainly the color or shape.

    That is a handicap I must overcome.

  3. I found this seed pod in a smal shrub loaded with beautiful yellow flowers. Plan to place these flowers in the upcoming days here at Lingua Franca. Nature is so wise in what it does; not matter what. πŸ™‚

  4. Hola Omar,
    I, too, am seed-aware disabled as our current culture would describe it. Nena is my reference but she is a farm girl from Boquete so some of the “New World” varieties are a puzzle to her.
    All the best references to seed ID appear to be from the United Kingdom. Their Victory Gardens from WWII are legend and the Brits are masters at growing things. The best site I found from there is:
    http://theseedsite.co.uk/seedpods.html

    But, have a cool drink and snacks handy because it is an enormous collection to review.

    1. Hi Jim and Nena:

      Never was vey good in Biology or Botany. I love to capture flowers with my camera, but have a hard time identifying them and learning their exotic names.

      Will take a look at your link and see if my lazy brain will learn anything. Lately I’m having a hard time remembering things. I have a gut feeling it has something to do with the accumulation of pages. Of calendar pages, I mean. πŸ™‚
