Time to start collecting...

If you want lots of these....
And these too...you need to start collecting...


These...

It is a bit tedious to collect them...but this time of year the violas all start giving off their seeds and so as I dead head the flowers...I keep a small plastic dish with me. So many people ask how I have so many pretty violas all over my yard...now you know my secret...well...I figure if the seed companies can do it... so can I...I collect seeds from many different flowers...you just have to wait for the right time...and do a little work...

Enjoy your day, my friends!! I'm on my way back out to the garden!!

I have always loved to collect seeds! It is such a calming task! ♥

I've never collected the seeds from flowers before. I always collect my cilantro seeds, and just throw them back in the ground. I'm going to have to go out and check out my viola's too.

I have so many volunteer tomato plants out in my garden right now. I know many of the tomato plants you buy at the store are hybrids now, but apparently the ones I had last year weren't :-)
Congratulations to your nephew!
Blessings,
Marcia
