The Seeds of Time




I love all the different seed heads in all their amazing shapes. Nature is the designer, tiny seeds held in little pockets and beautiful intricate designs just waiting to fly or sprinkle or blow on the wind. My pencil drawings were done a while ago and the seeds collected from the Snakehead fritillary.
I think a blog is just like Seed dispersal as it spreads and then grows, read by people all over the world, seeds scattered to far corners of the globe. So to everyone who reads this I wish you the very best and "A HAPPY NEW YEAR". And thank you for all the lovely comments you leave me, they are appreciated.
I would love to hear from you and how far my little blog has reached.
It is a beautiful sunny bright day, snow on the hills and very chilly. I am just going for my first walk in this new year 2010, to see what I find, then maybe some drawing.

Seed dispersal. What a great image. If you have a site meter you can see coloured dots all over the globe. Just like seeds. Happy New Year Milly.

Happy New Year to you and yours, Milly. Thank you for the lovely wishes and for dropping by my blogspot last week.
Your seed drawings are exquisite. I've been thinking of seeds because I've been thinking of 'diaspora', which comes from the Greek 'a scattering of seeds'. I just wrote a little about it last night and then come over here to find your post. Love it!

And a happy new year from (temporarily) the Netherlands (here or a family visit)! I am very happy to have found your blog - the moments of stillness enjoying your drawings are wonderful in our full full days, so: thank you.

Perhaps straining the analogy, I was delighted to follow the virtual seeds blowing from blog to blog to land on yours and see some of your lovely drawings. (Our blog is, in fact, named Raining Acorns . . . yet another "seed" connection. We are not visual artists, so we must content ourselves with word pictures and take inspiration from visual artists like you and the artist of the "wrack line" blog. See http://rainingacorns.blogspot.com/2009/12/things-as-they-are.html for an example of our writing that refers to one of her lovely works.)

Beautiful work. Glad to have found you!

Such lovely, amusing, intriguing shapes!

May 2010 find your metaphorical & literal seeds sprouting everywhere.
