Hmm ... sounds better than it looks doesn't it?  "Samara"♪... it kind of rolls off the tongue!  Haha!  Well, these samaras are the simple, winged, dried fruit produced by the many Manitoba Maples (Acer negundo) or Box Elders in my yard!  The kids and I love laying in the grass ... or at this time of year, snow and watch them 'flutter' to the ground!  And with such an abundance dangling from my trees there is no shortage of birds ... they love the seeds!
