Well, I’ve been busy as a bee collecting annual & perennial flower seeds from my garden and from my family and friends gardens too. I’m having so much fun that I’m sure everyone thinks I’m crazy. So far this past few months I have harvested seeds from almost 200 different flowers.
My biggest challenge is making sure I have the correct name of the plant and then identifying the seed. Once I have figured out where the seed is hiding I get a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Each flower and seed is so amazing & different. Some flowers give up their seeds easily and others keep them a secret hidden deep inside somewhere.
It’s been difficult finding images of the plant and the seed together in books or on the web. SOOOO! I’m now taking pictures of the seed pods etc and the seeds. I plan to put them together with my pictures of the flowers. Over the winter I will germinate the seeds and add pictures of them as well.
Maybe one day I’ll have enough information and photo’s to write a book!
Dare I dream? I plan to hold on to this vision!
Do any other gardeners and seed collectors think this information would be of any interest to them?
