"Open Sesame"


 I love it when the Desert Botanical Garden grows something unusual that I can learn from.  When I saw the signs identifying this plant, I was fascinated.  I wondered where sesame seeds came from and here it is.  Those little pods are full of seeds.

It was great that the garden provided a display so you could see the broken pods and the harvest of seeds.  

So, do you like sesame seeds on your bagel or bread?  I always find them a welcome addition.  


I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm enjoying the view of Manhattan from the plane.

Well that was now to me too. Isn't nature simply marvellous.

I use them all the time, but had never seen the plant. I learnt something new.

Nice display, and yes.

I never really thought about where they came from. I love them on bread and other things.

You have a wonderful view out that window! I'd be gazing out instead of getting my work done!

I never knew that's how they grow.

Definitely not something I've ever seen growing!
