seeds clinging to pod next to water
The theme of the week is afloat.

I came across this dried plant and noticed several seeds still clinging to the pod after sitting like this all winter long. With spring’s breezes finally starting to whip up, I believe the seeds will not be clinging to their home for long and will soon find themselves afloat.

They may float down to the ground and sprout, surviving as new plants. There’s a good chance they will end up in the pond, where they will be afloat once more, briefly. They may become food for a bird, insect, or other critter. Or they may settle softly in the dirt. No one knows where any of us will end up.
