Seeds everywhere I look

The garden made a liar of me. Having finished a marathon archive-reading session on this forum and browsing the overwhelming possibilities of the seed exchange forum, I humbly wrote a note to bakemom to introduce myself as a newbie and ask: "please could I have some seeds although I have nothing yet to offer back." Except... inspired by this forum, I walked through the garden with a new set of eyes. And wouldntchaknowit -- there are seeds everywhere!

The chamomile, the jacaranda, the bushy perennial daisy, the green spiky one, the wild ruffly one…. All seeding and just waiting for someone to notice and help make new green growing things.

I don’t actually know the names of most of what’s going to seed out back. And for some of it, I can’t even tell the seed from the chaff. (I’m looking at you, chamomile.) As I sort it out, I’ll update my member page and hope that any of this proves useful to any of you. In the meantime, I'm just delighted.
