I love collecting seeds from the wild and from gardens. Today I yaked the seeds off of a sweet correopsis , maybe a rock correopsis A dyssodia, and a Texas prairie parsnip. I need to get out there and collect some seed from my Thai rat tailed raddish

A couple of weeks ago I collected frogfruit and those tall dark red mexican hats.

In the herb garden, a bunch of cilantro seeds.

Pride of Barbados-3 kinds, barbados cherry, orchid tree, four o'clock, sea oats, Mexican flame vine and what are these in my pocket? Hmm, I don't know..
Tally HO!

I got a bunch of Cherokee sedge and Virginia wildrye stuck in my socks....

Actually I picked up several species of acorns last fall that have sprouted and are growing now: post oak, lacy oak, southern red oak, overcup oak (for the spots in my parents' yard that floods), loquat oak (Q. rhysophylla). I also got a Mexican buckeye to germinate. But my pride and joy right now is an American beech seed I got to germinate.

Great Oaks. if you get any more of the lacey oak this fall, think of me. I need to check out the others. I was out checking on the American basket flower. Not ready yet. The monarda citriodora (spelling?) needs to be cut down and distributed around. same with the scorpion flower. i am seeing lots of prickly poppie but that one hurts to collect.
