Like peas in a pod

These aren't garden peas, but the seed pods of a flowering shrub that grows wild around our region. I think it's genêt (broom) or something closely related. As they mature, these pods will turn dark, almost black.

Hairy seed pods.

We do have some garden peas in our vegetable garden. They're still small, but they are flowering and are actually producing pods. We don't have nearly enough for a harvest yet, and may not, as the plants are not growing very tall at this point.


  1. That's an interesting looking seed pod.

  2. Not as pretty as the "fungus" in the previous post!


Tell me what you think!
