Bladder Pod

Monday, March 7, 2011
Yes, the wildflowers are in bloom.  But you need to get out of the car and take short walks to find the good ones.  We don't have fields covered with blossoms, but they are out there.  This is a Bladder pod, Isomeris arborea, it's a member of the caper family and a favorite nectar plant for hummingbirds.  What's neat about this plant is the inflated seed pods, hence it's common name.
