....The miracle of the Conkers....

 

Last September Ginnie and I were in England and on our Bristol walk with Lisl, Chris, Alan and Bill I found some large chestnuts/conkers. I took them home, put them in a flowerpot, told 'them' over and over again 'you can do it'...

Miracles come true.... look at this. Over 4 months I had the patience not to disturb them. One came out. Still waiting for more to come.

Très jolie présentation pour ta plante.
Picturit: Thank you, Martine.
Astrid.
Well congratulations Astrid you have your own tree in the making. All you need to do is work out where to plant it.
Picturit: Thank you, Chad. I will replant it soon in a big pot and put it near the front door when it is a little stronger.
Astrid.
WONDERFUL! And I love your presentation here, Astrid!
Picturit: Don't you love it, this is so much fun. I often try to grow things.
Astrid.
Very fractal.
Picturit: Indeed and to me a real miracle that this comes from a chestnut.

Looks like medicinal grade hemp, Astrid! smile
Picturit: I know and I see the resemblance. I know for sure it is from a chestnut... if I would grow the other stuff I would do that on the balcony out of sight grin.... and not show HA...
Astrid.
You've been like a little kid at Christmastime, Astrid, and I love it for you. What a great remembrance from that day!
Picturit: This to me is a true miracle and such a wonderful memory of a glorious day. I will treat it well and I hope that it will live with us for a long time.
Thank you, Ginnie.

Now you will have to find a special place to plant it Astrid
Picturit: I already have a place in mind and I wait until it is a little bigger. To be continued.... smile

A genuine Bristol Horse Chestnut - well done, Astrid
Picturit: Indeed, the real deal.... Thank you, Lisl. A great memory to a great day.
Astrid.
wow, i am glad you did it and shared this with us. i like the fresh look and i think it is just perfect, Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Ayush. This is so fun to do. The waiting is the most difficult. The joy after I saw the little green leave come above the ground... It looks so nice green and it is growing by the day.

What a memory and what a success - you did speak with them in their mother tongue and they accepted you- I love the picture below, too.
Picturit: Thank you, Philine. I talked to them in English HA..... and will try to make them bi-lingual grin.....
It is still going strong smile
Astrid.
What will you do with them when they have grown?

That was a smashing day!
Picturit: Indeed it was a smashing day. I will have it at the front door. There is the most sun and I have a nice flowerpot for it too.
Astrid.
About 27 - 28 years ago, my neighbour who has now passed away, started several chestnut trees from that stage. They are planted next door in his and his son's yards. I love them so much. Where will you plant them?
Picturit: Don't you love that. It is so special. My mom and my son planted a 'tree' by putting some chestnuts in the ground. It grew faster than my son did grin..
I will put it in a flowerpot net to the front door, I have no garden.
Astrid.
That is great Astrid, your own little bit of English woodland in your apartment.
Picturit: It will remind me every time when I see the tree and that will be very often. I intend to plant it next to the front door in a flowerpot. I have no garden.
Astrid.

This is a very special collage. When plants (not trees) die in my garden, I leave them for a year. Many have come back with new energy.
Picturit: Thank you, Louis. Yes that is the way to do it. I know that sometimes you have to just leave them there and new life will come. To me 'the miracle of life'..
Astrid.
i love your little tree Astrid... patience means a lot...
your picture of your finds walking down the path is one of my favorite kind of shots...
when i am out walking with my family... i walk so slow that most of my pictures look like this Ha Ha!!

Picturit: It was a great day and we walked and talked the whole time. It was a smashing day like Bill said.
Thank you, Peter.
Astrid.
dream big, Astrid...
Picturit: I try smile.. but this helps and it will be great if it grows a little bigger.

Awesome! Keep us posted on the growth!
Picturit: I will, when we come home from Venice beginning of April I will put it outside next to the front door.
Astrid.
