If you remember, I ended my post about Snake’s Head Fritillary the other day pondering whether the seed pods were nearly ready to burst open. Well, it was a few more days but they weren’t far off. This weekend some are already empty and some are just opened up with the seeds now visible. Hopefully they will disperse happily and find a good spot, and I may have more Fritillaries flowering in the garden when I’ve hit my 50s!
Some of the Scabious flowers have reached seed dispersal stage too. It’s a little messy, after the perfection of the globe (or pincushion) shape, but it looks like these seeds are ready to catch the next gust of wind. Off you fly, seeds, and bring more joy with more flowers next year (a bit sooner than the Snake’s Head Fritillary!).
