Re: peony seed?/ now Glaucidium


Thanks for the tip on the Glaucidium Gene.  The bottom, wider part of the
plump green fan-shaped pods is a lighter color, a bt drier, and not shiny,
so maybe they are getting ready.  I'll keep an eye on them....I just went
out and put extra-small seed drying bags over two of the seed pods in case
they pop.  The are white nylon drawstring bags that will still allow sun
through and air to circulate.
