garden bloggers bloom day - collecting and appreciating seeds
The seed is hope; the flower is joy.

Skippy and I went out to look for flowers. The joy is gone, but we found lots of hope. Every size and shape of seed head and pods.
Its seed season. Leaves are faded laying on the ground, seeds ripening everywhere. Skippy and I walked through the wildflower fields. So many different shapes and types of seeds. I collected a handful of the big purple cone flower seeds. I admired these giant flowers this summer. The seed head dug into my leg through my pocket for the rest of the walk. Skippy collected a bunch of seeds too - all over himself as he ran through the fields.
(Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is the 15th of every month. This is a fun event started by Carole at May Dreams Gardens. I'm always very pleased with myself when I remember this in time to join in. If you head over to Carole's, there's a clickable list of everyone participating this month.)
