Cone and Seed

Posted 10/04/2018 - 17:10 Link
A cone picked up in the garden, a couple of weeks back.
Nothing unusual there so far , then.

But, we have no conifers in the garden. or anywhere near!
I'm supposing it had been picked up by some itinerant creature & then dropped. for some reason....

In the meantime, it's dried out a bit, the scales are opening & some of the seeds have fallen out.

It seemed rude not to take a couple of photographs......

Plant it !
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Great close-up shots. You should definitely plant it.
