Spring Music and Seeds in the Garden

The little seeds above are from our standard rose of sharon trees. I just removed 2 pods and was pleased to find these seeds that were hidden safely all winter long in their seed pods. These seeds are like musical notes...plant them in the soil and they will compose their own beautiful song in time.

This little clump in the sheep pasture no doubt started from seeds since it is out of in the middle of nowhere. I'm going to take a shovel and move them to the garden where they can add to the "spring musical" that is in progress now.

Our star magnolia is full of waving flowers. Waving because of the wind. Motion in the garden adds an pleasing element. These flowers are kind of shy-ish to me. The top petals always bend over their heads protecting them from intruding eyes.
