Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have just been collecting seeds from the wild flowers in my garden, ready for planting next year and it made me suddenly very aware of their importance.

Most of the seeds that I have collected would normally be dispersed by the wind shaking the stems but those in my photograph have an added advantage, they have parachutes, which can catch the wind and disperse much further.

The most common flower seeds dispersed in this way are dandelion and rosebay willow herb.

I am not totally sure what these seeds are. They were on the edge of a wild flower meadow but possibly not common to the area where I live. Maybe, someone can help identify them.

I will show a small section of the wild flower meadow as a workshop.

Have a good day, Bev :-)
