Milkweed

I see them wafting about on the air, little bits of floss, and I just couldn’t remember the name of the plant that gave birth to them.  Finally, talking to my son, it came back to me – milkweed, one of the wonders of God’s creation.

The plant forms a pod shaped like a parakeet, green, and when it ripens, it bursts along a seam and all these milky, floss-winged seeds take off on the spring air, giving it the venue of carnival time.  Milkweed, indeed.

There are many wonders in Nature, evolved there by a God who wanted to impress the children he’d eventually create, and I’d say he did a superb job.  I love to get out and walk Nature’s paths.
