GATHERING SEEDS...((and the winner of the give a way))

This is the time of year 
                       of bounty, harvest 
                                                    and thankfulness!

Nature is binding up it's
cycle and bringing forth
the "new" as it
prepares for rest...

...seeds are found
                               in all sorts of forms...

fruit ..


all waiting for their chance to                             

grow anew in the new season

                                                after the winter's  rest!

It is a time to gather 
and harvest before

the cold takes hostage
all of the bounty!

It is time to hang herbs 
and dried flowers 

and to save petals and leaves for 
potpourris or for pressed flowers
and arrangements

It is also a time to gather
 flower seeds
for the "Secret Garden"!!

Thank you to all that entered the
give a way!

one does not need much...
a box....
                                         a paper bag...

a sift....
                        a funnel....

some clippers ....
                               and scissors!



You must wait until the
seeds are ready and mature 
and dry on the plant
 before harvesting them!

Sweet rocket

long pods must dry on the plant


Don't pick too early!
These must be brown and look
to be "dead" on the stalks
maturing on the plant!

Truly truly I say unto you,
except a corn of wheat fall
into the ground and die,
it stays alone: but if it die,
it brings forth much fruit
                             John 12:24

Don't know what these are ?
(but they are so pretty and
only open early in the morning)

Oh look drum roll please...

keep in a dry place till

Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.
