Mystery Solved

"There are two ways to live your life. One was though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein

The mystery of the pod has been answered. Friend & plant specialist, Carole Bergmann came to the rescue. She sent a link with photos of the tree, the blossom and the pod. There is no doubt it is the same pod, it come from the Bottle Tree found in Australia. In trying to find information on this pod I research North American and Southwest books on trees. I have discovered that many years ago AZ used some trees from Australia in their landscaping. But, as happens so many times we find they are not the best options, always better to go with the local plants and trees.
