    My boyfriend delights in introducing children to the ‘poppers’ (seed sacks)…everyone should look for these when they are ready to burst. Such fun!

    Mine are blooming too…but the flowers seem sparse so far….I have the yellow, the orange and also a pink color….I have a photo of the pink if you would like to see….it’s the same size as the common orange jewelweed….HUMMERS LOVE THESE!!!!

    I’ve always delighted in popping the seed sacks of touch-me-nots, since my friend introduced me to them when I was about 9. I’m nearing 50, so I’m probably responsible for quite a large amount of the spread of these plants….

    We moved to Allegheny County from Butler County this year and live in a fairly rural area, and there are many of these guys across the road from our house, which absolutely thrills me.

    I always enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
