I love collecting seeds because they are beautiful things that are perfectly designed. Complex structures containing all the information needed to make a living plant. I love their shapes, colours and textures. With just a few handfuls I have a potential forest.
I love to grow seeds. Breaking open fruit, pods or capsules to find the seeds inside, or waiting for them to split open. I love planting them and then watching the seeds burst with life, emerging from the ground as their roots anchor into the earth and their leaves unfurl towards the sun.
