Art of Collecting Seeds

Today was a perfect fall day. There were still some seed treasures to collect outside. As I emptied out the pods on a white sheet of paper (that I would fold into a seed packet) I noticed a semi- doodle of a westie with a little imagination. Some days we have lots of that. I helped move a few seeds here and there...ahhh, our westie showed up!

Our westie boy fell asleep as did my doodle here. Is it called a doodle when you use seeds to draw with? 'Seedle' doesn't sound as cool, you know.

These seeds came from my perennial double-balloon-flower plant which has died back for the winter. The blue flowers rise tall and elegant and dangle like bells. A few months back the seed pods were still green so I left them to cure or dry still on the stems. Today I remembered them and went digging through leaves.

It's pretty clear that I am crazy about westies, art and gardening! Anyone can have a garden. Seeds are everywhere.

Love the transient nature of the seed pictures.

I love your seed doodles. I also collect and save seeds.
