Wow. I wonder what would happen if you threw them all out into the yard come early spring.
Rubye -- You know, I thought the very same thought -- just throw them on some soil and see what happens. Some of the seeds are quite old but I know that seeds usually have a few years of viability. However, I think I will keep them all mixed in my old short canning jar -- the colors and shapes intrigue me. -- barbara
I love your photograph! It would make great autumn note card.
Raining Iguanas, When I was cleaning out my store of seeds I noticed how earthy they looked laying on the table. I scooped them up and placed them in this small old canning jar. I then placed the jar in my primitive wall cabinet. There I could continuously see them in their textures and colors as I passed by. Nice that you suggest that I elevate the photo to a notecard. Thanks -- barbara
So much life in this jar.
Michelle -- I like having the jar in my old wall cabinet. It's at eye level so I notice it as I walk through the room -- the jar reminds me that life is lovely in all forms -- thanks -- barbara
The zinc lid just caps it all off. I love the diversity sitting in that, there short canning jar.
Nance -- Like your play on words lid/cap. Yes, diversity lives in that old jar, another good thought to think about when I look its way -- thanks -- barbara
It is a thing of beauty and life and past and future.
marciamayo -- past and future, yes. Good observation.
Great image. I also like all the collectibles on the shelf. Looks like one of ours.
Grampy -- the cabinet holds nature finds that I find particularly interesting. I imagine yours is the same way. -- barbara
What a beautiful still life. Just a wonderful photograph, filled with metaphor and meaning.
Teresa -- A nice way to describe it -- a still life. Thanks -- barbara
