Today brought me up to the kitchen, where a lot of nature has been coming in and sticking around for tea and supper. The beautiful fall leaves have dried to a crisp and this morning whispered quietly to me that they are ready to be back outside. So, we spent some time going through our treasures and collected as many seeds from different plants as we could. My idea is to plant them in our backyard and re flourish a “wild” part of our yard. Now… we have originally collected these bits of plant life from various areas, around where we live…and brought them home. I’m not too sure how environmentally correct I am going to be by doing this. I mean they are native to our area. I guess one thing is for sure, planting some wild seed a little further than the wind probably would’ve carried it, is much better than plowing over fields and pouring down concrete, so I’m probably in the safe zone. Right?
As you can see, we shouldn’t have any trouble remembering which seeds are which, given the lovely labeling job done by Hawthorn. After collecting our seeds, our nature pile can go back out to nature to become new nature, and then our house will have room to invite the next batch of treasure over for tea.
