    The appeal of the droplets balances the beauty of the flower. I read that another common name is ‘snapweed.’ Do the ripened pods snap open as easily as peoplel say?

    • I had not heard the “snapweed” name. But they do pop open easily, hence the “touch-me-not” name and they do open easily. As kids we used to have fun with them. I haven’t done that in years and we do have a nice stand of them. Excuse me for a minute…

    Lovely drops, both the in-focus and the out-of-focus ones, and the flower looks great.
