Re: peony seed?/ now Glaucidium

Hi Kitty,
    They are unusual, indeed. Pods form very early in the year but do not
mature until about now. Mine got on the dry side during July and I just now
collected my pods. Be on the look out as they will separate like molds.
Exactly in half along the seams. Seeds are paper like with a brown bump in
the middle. Bit like a round hosta seed. Keep a close eye out as they are
due any time now... the pods do not necessarily turn brown as an indicator.
