Mystery Seed of the Week 212

Our mystery seeds this week did not photograph well.

Do you recognize what plant these seeds are from? If you choose to, please leave a comment with your ideas.

New mystery seeds and Seed of the Week answers are posted on Tuesdays.

    Your first guess is a good one. I think you’ll recognize the plant when you see what it is.
