Seeing Seeds

A seed is both the beginning and the end of a plant's life.--Teri Dunn-Chase

Late summer and fall are the time of year to notice seeds.

May-Ying Lam and Adrian Higgins (Washington Post) select a few images of seeds from Seeing Seeds (2015), by Robert Llewellyn and Teri Dunn-Chase to show us their beauty and diversity.

The first is an image of the buttonball fruits of sycamores.

You may find some seeds from plants you know but which might have missed your careful notice.

In the link to "Seeing Seeds" you will find 53 images of seeds, all unlabeled. What you will notice is that there are many ways to be a seed.
