Christmas Children

Trump backs Brexit - that should be a welcome boost for the vote IN campaign.

Our Christmas tree has had children.About 15 years ago a neighbour planted his small, rooted Christmas tree in what has become our garden. It's now some 30 feet tall and regularly showers us with cones. 

I collected some of these during winter to use as firelighters - the shape and natural oils make them excellent firelighters for the wood burner.

 During the drying process they gave up thousands upon thousands of seeds, which I planted a few weeks ago. They sprouted over the weekend:

Perfect for planting (when of suitable size) around the cabins to provide some privacy and landscaping.
