Wow, It Actually Works!

After watching the bumblebees struggle to get into the tightly closed flowers of closed gentian, the last thing I expected to find was viable seed. Here we have flowers that have produced seed. To me it's one of the real miracles of nature!

Many of the flowers didn't produce any seed. These dried flowers are empty with no sign of seed development. Getting some seed to plant is a wonderful surprise!
