Seeds of Tomorrow Presented by Yesterday

A fascinating item, the humble rose of sharon seed pod. They begin the winter closed up tightly with a shape like a bumpy acorn. They remain that way through the cold months until January when they begin to open until they reach their full majestic display like this pod. That’s how seeds of tomorrow are presented by yesterday.

One or two seeds, each about the size of a grape seed with brush-like hairs, sits in each of those arms. The seeds that birds don’t eat will fall and germinate in the spring rains. And then you too will have an area of rose of sharon bushes that outgrow everything else.

I feel that I have enough roses of sharon right now, but it’s hard to deny their enthusiasm.
