I was sitting in front of the computer about to start today's post when I heard it.
I looked over to the left where the sound came.
What do ya know?
A California poppy pod makes a sound when it opens.
And, the seeds go all over the place.
Yesterday, I harvested a pocketful of poppy pods and left them all on a small oval plate on top of the radio. The poppy pod that popped was not on the plate. Did the pod jump off the plate as it opened? So it seems.
That's my story for today. Much more interesting than I was about to write.
I wonder if that's how poppies got their name.
