When President Obama met with Pope Francis recently he gave a perfect gift: seeds from his garden at home.
The presentation - velvet envelopes in a wood and leather chest - is fit for precious items. And they are. What other gift is the very essence of sharing than a seed from a plant you tended into maturity? A present that can multiply and feed in so many ways.
This is wonderful press for seeds...finally getting the attention and stature they deserve!
