Poppies - Nature's Salt and Pepper Shakers

Ever grown poppies?  Their seed pods are amazing!  My kids call them salt and pepper shakers.

Just look at this amazing pod!

See the holes at the top for the seeds to come out?

Heaps of little seed contained in here!

"Oh yes!  I can see how it works!"
How can people possibly be tempted to mess with nature!  Nature is perfect and it is arrogant to assume we can improve on it with man made interference.  A bit more respect for God's creations and we wouldn't be in the mess we are in!

I've never seen one before. Such an interesting pod poppy's have.
