Seeds

I have almost, an actual problem with seed collection. My eyes are always hunting for fat, ripe pods, just on the verge of splitting. My pockets are full of seed chaff and remnants, I will happily spend hours extracting individual tiny seeds from their quarters. I find everything about seed incredible, from the complex structures of seed pods, to the amazing dispersal methods, to the individual size, texture and colour of each seed, the process by which it was created, the challenge in determining viability and most of all, I delight in the fact that a seed represents unadulterated potential. It is pure in its existence. It was created to grow…  a philosophy I try and incorporate into my own life in earth. Here, I will be compiling a list of my favourite seed types. Click the links.
