Donner---Really nice picture!

You are more than welcome! I live to share.......and ,most of all, I appreciate feedback from Folks that have gotten my seeds. They are like children to me......I want to know how they are "growing up".

You have a bunch of seed-pods formed already----all those things on the right of the blooms with the 2 pointy things on them...I will have a lot too...my plants are now close to 7' tall....branching all over and blooming away....

Beware!!!! These pods will be woody and hard when dry--and it will be a struggle to get the seeds out.....get your pliers out....There are 3 tubes in each of the pods....have to break them apart.....then remove the flat seeds...

See the picture Sally posted on her article of the seeds--the cones--and the pods.....I took that--and I struggled to get the seeds out....It was my first go too last year.

OR!! I can just post it again here....Gita
