Milkweed Explosion
My daughter and I make expeditions each autumn to a field near our home in Concord that has a fine crop of milkweed. We keep checking the progress of the pods. Finally they burst, releasing the teardrop-shaped seeds on their silken "parachutes" to drift across the field in the autumn breeze, expanding the patch and making next year's crop even better.
