Master Propagator at Work

We’ve all heard the phrase, “It’s self-seeding”  and we all know what it means.  Some have learned to ask, “How vigorously does it self-seed?”  Every once in awhile,  you see Mother Nature at work in some of the less visible ways that she works , sometimes but not often.  We had just had a snowfall and there was nothing to mar it.  No cat tracks, no snow dropping off the roof,  not a mark.  So when I was walking from the car to the front steps and happened to look towards the garden,  I was drawn to the bits of black on the snow – Gloriosa Daisy seeds.

    What a wonderful sightings! I never saw seeds naturally scattered on snow. It can be very mesmerising indeed.

      Neither had I. There are very few examples of Nature at work like this. Milkweed seeds blowing in the event is a late summer constant but there are few others that I can think of. The lupin pods have either popped or are just about to pop but I’ve never seen one actually pop. And even if I did, it would be over in an instant. These seeds on the snow were a moment frozen in time. Mesmerising is exactly what it was. Thanks for the description.
