picking treasures ...

these are my treasures ... saga seeds. they are also memories from my childhood. there used to be a saga tree (Adenanthera pavonina) in front of my school and we used to scramble around picking up the saga seeds while waiting for transport home. there was a time i used to cycle all round the neighbourhood with a schoolmate and we will always stop to pick up saga seeds when we come across them. happy times ... joyful times ... carefree times.

I never really saw them as treasures then but something we picked up for use as 'counting seeds'. In fact, i had long forgotten about them until recently when memories were stirred, and treasures they became.

hi girl, it's weird that they translate the blog into russian. wonder if it happens elsewhere in other languages. sure hope it does not happen here.
Sharon: I put them into glass jars and other containers. they are really pretty especially when you get lots of them together. and I don't shoot them at others, unlike Evelyn, my daughter!!

U can't eat the seeds as it is rock hard n ur teeth would break if u tried...well tried before but the breaking of teeth din happen..lol...n it comes from a tree,not a plant n it grows in tropical countries only i think.
