Seed Saving

This year, I thought that I would like to try saving seeds from rose hips.  I had my eye on some on a route that I often walk and checked their progress each time I passed, until eventually, they looked ripe.  

Once I got them home, I left them in the kitchen for a couple of days, wondering just how to go about extracting the seeds.  I found a helpful tutorial on YouTube and set to work extracting, cleaning and drying the seeds.

Once dry, I bagged them and have put them away until the spring.  I only collected two hips, but I have lots of seed and hope to grow some pretty roses.  Only time will tell...
