Earth Mother's Helicopter Factory
The maple trees are now in bloom and if you look carefully, you will find the Earth Mother's amazing helicopter seed factories are in full production. Whether your family refers to them as helicopters, twisters, or whirlers, these maple tree seeds are perfectly designed to float and spin to the ground hoping to find a place to grow. I remember the excitement as a child to discover the beauty of these helicopter seeds and have since passed that wonder onto my children and grandchild. So the next time you spy one of these seeds, be playful. Don't worry about someone watching you. Pick it up and launch it high into the air and watch and marvel as the helicopter seed spins its path to the earth. And then maybe a smile will come to your face as you remember the awe and wonder of being a child, and your very own first maple seed helicopter flight.
