In these frigid temperatures, 2ºF this morning, thinking about Spring is a wonderful thought as the Winter sun pours through the window.
In the tiny garden near the deck, there's a patch of green ( bottom photo) that I know are a silver dollar plant. They love being near the building.
One plant can provide a lot of dry stems for all sorts of uses, not just a neat bouquet in a pretty pewter vase.
Once they are dry enough, gently remove the outer cover by sliding fingers back an forth until you can catch an edge and pull them off. Have a container ready to put the seeds in. The seeds grow on both sides of the silver dollar.

Know the leaves so you don't mistake them for weeds. In the Spring, little purple flowers will spruce up the landscape.
