Exploding Seed Pods

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 

Up in the East Bay Hills there are these shrubberies that about this time of year grow furry seed pods. Last time I was up there running I heard a series of loud pops and snaps that I thought were some kind of insect feeding in the bushes.


I looked for whatever enthusiastic bugs were having a good time in the bushes and found none… and just by luck brushed a seed pod and set it off. It exploded with a loud snap and sprayed my hand with small black seeds.

I noted the trail was peppered (sort of literally) with tiny black seeds and pods were exploding all around.

Rental Mustang

The Canadian version is pretty much the same as the US version.

The audio jack in the center console is a very good thing. It should be standard on all cars.
As a Canadian rental, perhaps better in summer than winter.
