The photos speak for themselves – luscious vibrant red seeds that I collected on my evening walk, who can resist picking these up? I later found that they are seeds of the Saga Tree (kindly advised by Sydney Fong on his blog Add Grain on Earth which has some very interesting posts on Singapore, not just trees)! I also found out these seeds are 1 gram each and were widely used as a weight measurement for gold and silver in days gone by.
My seeds have been planted now by my husband – let’s hope we can start our own saga.
