Mowing at my AngelMother's today;
I started around her Magnolia tree then spotted
What a delight to discover the little pods going to seed.
Seriously I never noticed this before. I'd never even thought about the pods
busting out in seeds like this. The other times I've mowed it was blooming but ...
never have I seen it go to seed. Timing I guess?
When I finished, I went home and got my camera to take these pictures and
I grabbed a couple pods too.
Googling them I learned that I can grow more magnolia trees.
There are no baby trees growing around the base of this one so they must be
tricky but I'm gonna give it a try. It says it helps to soak them overnight and then you
gotta get the exterior off ... we'll see how that goes.
Maybe one day there will be more Magnolia trees growing down by the woods,
thanks to the AngelMother Magnolia here.
Recently out "junkin" we came upon this
"coal miner's canary cage."
It's all handmade from ... tin cans?
The inside of the door has writing on it...
it was made from an old "battery."
Someone spent alot of time making it and
it's very strong. It'd be cute hanging from a tree, but
I hate to mess it up outdoors so it might make a good ribbon/lace holder
in my craft room.
You never know what you're gonna find?!
Don't you wish this cage could tell it's story?
Have a great weekend,
