Seed Gathering Website

Wow – I missed a whole month of recording bloom times – go figure!

This post is about a great new (to me) website about saving seeds and since it ’tis the season I thought maybe somone would be interested. This sight gives pics of seed pods, seeds and seedlings. Even has wild flowers and weeds – invaluable!
