So it's already July 19 in Australia, and Sophie Munns' "Homage to the Seed" activities drew to a close yesterday. But since it's still July 18 in Portlandia and since these wonders of nature are, really, so very wonderous, I thought I'd share them as a parting gesture. Above, a glorious cluster of onion flower buds that will eventually become seeds. And below, gorgeous, edible (but purportedly VERY tart) Oregon Grape berries, just beginning to turn luscious deep blue and each holding two small seeds within.
For more of this beautiful palette, you owe it to yourself to check out Garden Fool's STUNNING photos of a Tiger Swallowtail in her garden. Kudos to Sophie and kudos to Em!!!
