I love the "free for all" feeling your banner exudes. The colors radiate summer.

Thank you all my friends! Smiling

Happy you enjoy the images of plants I get to
see everyday in person. Also happy to share the
seeds. Green Grin!

I let the nasturtiums go to seed in place, but take out
the whole coreopsis & put it upside down in a large
paper bag to dry out.
Just one coreopsis seed head will produce ~50 (haven't counted) more
plants. Hurray!

The nasturtiums are endemic in multiple places, but I encourage them
as they make a nice easy foliage & colorful blooms, and
create a synergy with everyone else, e.g. roses, coreopsis, alyssum, etc.

I'll be transplanting a small "jewel" variety into a pot today.

Have a great day everyone. Thumbs up
