Word - Pod

The word for this week is pod.

Its noun meaning: a dry fruit (as of a pea) that splits open when ripe; an external streamlined compartment (as for a jet engine) on an airplane; a compartment (as for personnel, a power unit, or an instrument) on a ship or craft.

Isn't it interesting the way the pod opens untwisting itself to spill the seeds for next years plant? I just couldn't believe my eyes seeing the beautiful unfurling of the pod, who knew it uncurled itself? I will definitely start paying closer attention to this intriguing vine from now on. I am so glad we moved it to the backyard otherwise I may have missed this breathtaking moment.
