Gone to Seed

A couple weeks ago I was outside in my front yard and I discovered that the African Daisies I'd planted in my hanging baskets had lots of little seeds in the spent and dry flowerheads. I thought, "hey, why don't I harvest these seeds, create little packets for them and give them as gifts to my friends for planting next year?" So I took a couple digital shots of the flowers still growing, did some photo-manipulation in Photoshop and voila! Seed packet imagery. I then printed several copies out and assembled them into the finished packets. It was a fun and quick little project.

And my 2006 Daisies will have their second-coming through their seeds in 2007. :)

Yay! Love the daisies! I can't wait to plant them - although I'm not too confident in my gardening abilities considering I've nearly killed all my patio plants :(
Nice presentation as well...I'm a huge sucker for pretty pictures and attractive packaging.
Happy gardening!

Lots of sun, lots of water and good rich soil. I look forward to seeing your flowers next year! ;)
