I never got around to planting those seeds from the mystery tree. I meant to. I looked at the little zip lock baggie almost every day, intending to file the hard shells and plant the seeds near the fence out back. But I never quite got around to it. Then one day I noticed there was a bug inside the baggie with the seeds. Icky. How did he get in there? Well, at least he appeared to be dead. Weird!
Now, several weeks later, there are two bugs in the baggie. And they are alive. And they have bored perfectly round holes in the seeds. How strange is that? I think the whole bag is going in the trash now. Seeds I like - Bugs I don't!

The details captured by a DSLR camera never cease to amaze me. My camera sees far more than my eyes ever will. Simply amazing. (click on picture to enlarge)

They have tiny leaves. I imagine they make a good mess in the fall.
This year we noticed the pods for the first time. Most of them were green.
However, we found a few that had dried and turned brown. So we picked them and stripped the seeds from them.
The problem now is - How to get the seeds to grow a tree! We have twenty seeds. They look similar to a watermelon seed but they are brown. Very smooth and the sizes vary.
Any suggestions would be appreciated! I have never grown a tree from a seed before and don't even know if it is possible :)

We took a walk around the yard and snapped some pictures to share.
This red day lily has never been a favorite,
but this year it looks better than in the past.

And pop, they exploded within 2 days.
This is the promise I love to see.
It tells me my favorite blooms are getting very close.
I really love these pink Calla Lily's.
Every year they multiply, which delights me to no end!
