Have you ever heard of a plant most commonly known as silver dollar?

Winter, spring, summer, and fall comes and goes. The first four words reminds me of the song "you've got a friend" but no this post is not about that song. I love plants and watch them come alive in spring. So beautiful it is to live in this world surrounded with natural beauty.

I have never seen a beautiful plant commonly known as silver dollar in my country until my mother in-law gave me a dried arrangement and seeds to sprinkle in our backyard. She had so many of them growing in her garden and every year she sold a lot of them in the market. It's funny how many people ask them for more. The seeds that she gave me have grown about half foot until winter made them disappear from the ground. I was upset about what happened to my plant but I am hoping for the best that this spring they will show up again.

If you were curious how it look like you can easily spot them. Who knows maybe you have it in your backyard too. :-) The plant has a deep purple flower and has a dollar-like seed pods. When dried, these pods with seeds make attractive decorations. Check out two year old silver dollar plant decoration that my mother-in-law gave me. Very pretty..
