Glad I could prod some of those memories, especially after baiting you about tasty pastries! My boyhood memories of milkweed include only the mature pods, not the ones like I've shot here. That's one of the reasons I took it apart to look inside. Such a nice texture, and quite different than the ripe ones (which I still feel compelled to pull apart so I can watch the seeds float on the wind!).
