The delicacy of the milkweed.


If you peel back the topmost layer on a milkweed bud before it has a chance to dry and open, it’s really quite intricate! Like some form of lattice structure – I wonder if there’s a way to preserve/showcase …

In this photo, I’ve completely peeled the bottom part down to the seed. And on the top, I’ve just peeled back the topmost layer of the “skin” of the pod. The slight green on the right is some of the skin which I didn’t peel off.
