my son & i found these velvet-feeling pods vine, locked up tight, hanging in some trees. they are softer than the inside of a bunny’s ear. any guesses as to what they are/become?

    I saw some years ago and thought they were coming from a wisteria vine. The internet confirms they are wisteria seed pods: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=wisteria+seed+pods&qpvt=wisteria+seed+pods&FORM=IGRE

        My pleasure, Amy! I did the same thing, kept them for years, but have lost track of them now.

      They are marvelous. I’ve put them on the window sill to dry. I think i’ll hang them up to keep, like a lucky rabbit’s foot. 🙂 ~amy
