If you want to use the seeds to plant more next year, you need to let them dry as they are on the plant and collect them when they are ripe.

Farewell-to-Spring (Clarckia amoena). Note on the seeds: if you let the pods ripen completely, then they will open on the plant, and you will lose most of the seeds. Better to let the pods start to get just parchment-like, then pick them, and put them in paper bags to finish drying.
