A Horse Chestnut Tree in the making…..
November 2018, my youngest grandson Ewan, brought back several conkers from a nearby Horse Chestnut Tree.
So it was down to the green house, out with a pot, in with some compost and pop in one of the conkers. Spring 2019 it started to send up a thin but sturdy ‘trunk’ and then produced a few leaves. Over what has been a very wet winter, into the spring 2020 and we have a host of distinctive Chestnut leaves. So with care it was time to pot it on ..into a bigger pot.
Just one of the garden task of the day. Yesterday Saturday there were far more people than usual out in our local Park. The vast majority kept their social distance, very much respectful and aware of others, a few seemed oblivious to other folk.
I am not usually one to feel uncomfortable, but I did. So with another sunny day and still the weekend, I decided to stay at home and potter in the garden.
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
