Bur Cucumber

The bur cucumber pods have dropped their seeds now. This one is still on the vine,
 but the ones that have already fallen to the ground have had the outer layers scuffed off.
 You can see the spaces where the seeds fell out of the pod, in this last capture.

thanks for always posting such interesting images. I've never heard of a bur cucumber but it makes me happy that we live in a world with such neat looking stuff I've never encountered.

Love your pictures too.
