Daddy Forever said...

That's a really interesting photo. The silk cacoons look like peanuts. I didn't know they look like that.

How neat!!

Sara Bonds said...

I agree with the other comment that those look like peanuts. What hatches from those cocoons? Butterlies? Moths? Worms? LOL. I am clueless.

Happy WW from Sara @ the Mostly Wordless Wednesday H.Q.!

Amazing, they do look a bit buggy, and to think they make such lovely fabric.

I first thought it was peanuts, lol ! I have seen such cocoons in Turkey.
My WW picture shows a little village in the mountains of south Morocco. They got electricity only 4 or 5 years ago !

I agree, they look like peanuts but they are not :)

This is where the silk came from ;)

Somehow it gave me the goosebumps to see this. :)

Wow, that is an awesome capture!

Thanks for your visit and compliment on my WW; I'm not sure what type of flower it is; some sort of daisy, I think.

Have a great day!

How interesting, they look like hairy peanuts. Who'd have thought it...

I didn't make the stars on my blog though I wish I could, they're lovely. I saw them hanging in a store a few weeks ago.

Did anyone mention that they look like peanuts? Hahaha - just kidding ;0) I'm curious where you happened upon such a large amount of silkworm cocoons to begin with. Looking forward to the worm next week - you should call it Wormy Wednesday.
