Peas in a Pod

An early fall walk reveals a hint of change in the local flora and fauna. In the photo below you see a large pod I found on the Greenbelt along the Boise river. When I got home, I carefully opened it to see how many “peas” the pod contained.

The expression “peas in a pod” alludes to the seeds in a pod that bear a close resemblance to each other. Sure enough, the “peas” in this pod are like identical triplets!

And while many of us look similar to our family members, it’s been said that each of us has a doppelgänger — a non-biological twin.

I’ve been told on numerous occasions that I look like Peter Pan (not kidding), especially as portrayed by Mary Martin.

Who have you been told that you look like?
