|About the size of a pickling cuke.|
These were growing out of a mass of thistles mixed with several other plants beside a lagoon in Reifel Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary. They look like small cucumbers, but grow from a stiff stalk, not a vine. I thought they might be day lily pods, but they hang down, instead of standing upright on the stalk. And they're bigger than any lily pods I've seen.
|Two of three on one stalk.|
No leaves were visible among the thistles, and I couldn't reach them to dig through and find the base of the plants.
What do you think?
(Google daily mix-up: why, when I Google "lily pods", do I get a photo of the rear end of a zebra?)
