A FARMER AND HER BOY carefully
plant seeds in their garden.
In the wild garden many seeds are planted too—but not by farmers’ hands.
The wind spins and spills seeds out across the meadow.
Raindrops and wash seeds away to new homes.
Birds and animals carry seeds with them as they travel from place to place.
Under the hot summer sun, Scotch broom pods open in the summer heat,
flinging seeds here, there, and everywhere.
