I'm celebrating the wonder of seeds.
This is one of the most familiar seed dispenser. Very effective at shaking seeds everywhere.
This is Geranium nodosum. You have to be quick to catch these seeds. Those little cups at the top start at the bottom and ping up when ripe, throwing out the seeds. If you are lucky you can catch one still sitting in the cup.

|Salsify makes the perfect globe seed head.|
|Some we can eat|
|Just look at how these unravel. I can't help pulling them apart in wonder. It's a weed, in case you were wondering.|

To me seeds are the most amazing things. These are just a few that I have managed to capture. All that potential wrapped up in a tiny package and dispensed in so many different ways. Nature is so effective at her job.
Actually I think I will go and get out those seed catalogues...
