Scattering seeds in Steenbok

Winter is well on its way and evidence of this is the helichrysum foetidum
(yellow everlasting) looking dried and withered.  The fruits have pappus bristles which are easily dispersed by the wind.

The photos show Roger enjoying the task of collecting the dried seed heads along the Tow Path, to disperse elsewhere in the Reserve, and then giving Mother Nature a helping hand in the area west of the tennis courts by simply shaking the dried pods that are already there!

You too can help to spread this pretty daisy by gently shaking the dried helichrysums to release and disperse the seeds.
