Ghost Apples, New Shoots and A Poem

26 Jan

These beautiful things are known as “Ghost Apples” They are created when freezing rain coats rotting apples, and when the mushy rotten apple falls out, it leaves a shell of ice.   I don’t know who to credit with the photos.

Lots of hope springing in the garden. Here are some Nigella seedlings on their way and a new shoot of Anemone Blanda.

    Wow! I have never seen or even heard of glass apples before – what a phenomenon!

      Neither had I. Remarkable aren’t they? 🙂

      Aren’t they? I love to see some real ones but it doesn’t freeze much in Cornwall. 🙂

    That’s a wonderful poem – thank you, I hadn’t come across it before. Love the ghost apples too, also new to me, and any signs of spring are welcome!
