This evening I was determined to get some of the flowers planted in the garden while the rain stayed away. I always have a look around the garden first to make sure everyone is happy and tend to any plants that need a little extra care. I noticed that the red campion had started to go over.
What I have never seen before is the little pod filled with seeds.
I think it is a great example of evolutionary design; when the wind blows the seeds are spilt from the pod and dispersed.
I decided to give the plant a helping hand and took a few of the seeds and spread them in the garden and field. What I wouldn’t have noticed if I hadn’t taken a photo of the seeds in my hand is the texture of the seed; like a tiny lychee!
