Seed head

love in a mist seed head
Emerging seed heads.
Reminder that the summer
flowers are now spent.


This love in a mist came from seeds shared by my Auntie Ruth, many years ago. I was thinking today that the many plants I have in the garden, from seeds or starts by various relatives and friends, is another way to honor and remember them.

That is an unusual flower and very pretty. I'm taking seeds from my hollyhocks to my grandsons to plant in their garden. I also have sunflowers drying. xo Jenny

Very interesting plant and I love your thoughts about memories of the loved ones who gave you starts. I have a few plants from my parents old place that will always remind me of them too. Lovely poetry as well.

Your seed head makes for an especially nice macro shot. I need to go look outside and see what I can come up with. Beautiful capture. genie
