We've taken time out in the past to hold up our handsome honeybees as model workers. Hardly the first to do that, we know. But northern sea oats? Perhaps a stretch to think of them as workers but they are kicking ass out front of the shop, making themselves quite at home indeed. Propagating both sexually (these lovely seeds are evidence of that) and vegetatively (no sex needed here, just spreading underground via rhizomes like our friends the aspens), they've been gettin' biz-ay in the yard along Galapago. We spend the summer making a bunch of tables and chairs and what-not and they take over while we're not looking. Since he's a total freak for all translucent seeds, Clovis took a fistful of the seeds one-by-one into the slide scanner. A pair of scanner results here, a fancy-boy glamour shot of the oats out front to follow.
