Seeds are Momento of Tragic Death
On occasion, I collect items of ephemera. Ephemera is transitory written and printed matter not intended to be retained or preserved. According to Wikipedia, the word derives from the Greek, meaning things lasting no more than a day. Some collectible ephemera are advertising trade cards, bookmarks, pamplets, tickets and . . . letters. I recently found a plastic envelope containing some letters.They provide the basis for an account of a death in Canada in 1891. Far too long for this blog, you may care to move over to the Graveyard Detective blog to read more about the seeds that are a sad momento of a tragic death. An interesting account that asks for your advice and help.
