 How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon.
December is here before its June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.

Indigo Blossoms… waiting for those seeds for next years planting.

I harvested all the blossoms, even the tiniest ones and put them all in water until they matured into seeds.

Indigofera Tinctoria bears the common name true INDIGO. The plant was one of the original sources of indigo dye. True indigo is a shrub one to two meters high. It may be an annual, biennial, or perennial,
depending on the climate in which it is grown.
It has light green pinnate leaves and sheafs of pink or violet flowers as seen above.
