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.

“Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.

But you are eternal and you are the mirror.”

Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

“From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them,
and that is eternity.” ― Edvard Munch

“We’re always thinking of eternity as an idea that cannot be understood, something immense. But why must it be? What if, instead of all this, you suddenly find just a little room there, something like a village bath-house, grimy, and spiders in every corner, and that’s all eternity is. Sometimes, you know, I can’t help feeling that that’s what it is.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
