I had one of those satisfying gardening days today when you go out to do one job and then get lots of unscheduled jobs done. While weeding I found this little treasure:
a discarded walnut shell growing its own garden. When I was a child, I bought a tiny doll in a walnut shell cradle on a visit to London. I've been entranced by them and their miniature possibilities ever since. The cup contains some of Steve's windfall Golden Delicious apples.
Here's the remainder on the tree. And here are my Cox's Pippins.
