Now I’m home and sort of unpacked, but certainly not organised, I have located my acorns, conkers and keys!
And, before I left my Mum’s, I raided her phone for good photos of the old oak tree. She says it is the same age as the ones in Windsor Great Park and that this tree once formed part of the park when the land was included. Obviously not part of the golf-course then.
Then I have the acorns from the red oak, which is fairly new – probably about 30 years old. I think I have 10 acorns and Mum is on constant look-out and collect!
Plus the “perfect” oak tree. Ths photo was taken last year.
And conkers from the horse-chestnut and some keys from the sycamore.
So if you want any, and are happy to pay postage, please email me – firstname.lastname@example.org – and let me know your name and address and what you want. This is strictly on a first come, first served basis and I am reserving a few of each first for OH as he has plans for his Arboretum (good luck with that!)
And if there is a huge demand, I will send my 80 year old mother out collecting!
