.....The "Present" and the past. I'm planning on a early xmas soon as my super lightweight telescopic pruning pole/shears arrive. The time is near!
Johny, very nice pic!
Whats's that piece of cord hanging in this tree?
This year the Picea torano in my Pinetum made it's first cones which is a very nice happening to see :o)
Hi Edwin, the "cord" is needles from a nearby Pinus palustris.
I finally made the "cone collection" trip yesterday and should be able to extract a sufficient amount of seed even with a low yield from the 149 cones collected.
How many picea toranos do you have a rare species indeed.
Another year, another cone collection. 'Picked' these up Friday, Lots of hollow seeds seem to be the norm.
