Telosma Update

I forgot that I stuck a mature Telosma seed pod in a bag a few weeks ago. I found it opened to reveal the feathered seeds inside.
You can really tell at this stage that they really are from the milkweed family. The silky hairs or pappus are soft and silvery.
It is quite a gorgeous seed pod really. I think we're going to have to collect some more seed pods and have fun releasing the seeds.

What a fun discovery!

Ti napu.

I see you're an avid collector of seeds. Maybe someday you'll be able to fly like the feathers... absolutely gorgeous findings!
