Being Prepared is No Laughing Matter

It is a good idea to store some nuts for those cold winter months.

HE-HE. I was recently brought some acorns back from Italy. I put a pin through the skin, to help them germinate- only to find they were full of GRUBS.

However- during the spring I found seeds from trees in the Imperial gardens in the Forbidden City. I pushed them into my camera case- where I forgot about these shiny, black pips.

On return to the UK, I found them and thought I might as well have a go growing them. I soaked them for a week and nothing. So, I took a sharp knife to the skin and within days they were sprouting.

There are now three healthy and majestic babies.

Oh do take photos of them. I want to see!
You know sometimes you just have to go different routes to get to the end result you want.
