Hello All!

Perhaps you remember photos of beautiful multi-colored corn in gorgeous shades of blues, pinks and yellows going around the web.  The corn is called "Glass gem" and has been on back-order for the seed bank that produces it.  I just received an email (I signed up to be alerted when seeds would be available) and they are in!  I just ordered some.  Since there is such high interest (5,000 people on the alert list) and a limited number of seeds, they are limiting purchases to one package per customer.  In case any of you are interested in giving this corn a try, you can purchase seeds here:

Although you do not need to be a member to purchase from the Native Seeds seedbank, you do need to sign up and have a user's name.

I used to love climbing trees when I was young, so I've been checking-out the gnarly bark on the African tree to determine if it could be climbed without a rope or ladder.  Looks like it could be :)

Thanks Dominic & Sentient.  I love trees also, but can't comprehend them that old.  Those trees with multiple trunks fascinate me and that tree with the huge girth is just amazing.

Dominic and Sentient, these photos of old trees astound me. Just look the many trunks of that 4,000 year old gingko and the huge 2,000 year old trunk in Africa!.

Thanks for the tree pictures, Dominic and Sentient- they're wonderful!

It makes me feel better too.

I have a few old live oaks on my property with philodendrons, bromiliads and orchids growing on or hanging from them.  I love my trees and their twisting branches and the Spanish moss which hangs from them.  Of course they are unaware of history, but I know they are aware of at least the watering they get on a regular basis, which is something that people before me neglected to do.  I'd like to think that they know I care about them, but that just makes me feel better.

Dominic,

You have found the way to my heart!  I love massive old old trees.  No idea there was such a specimen in Africa.  Beautiful!

Imagine the history that's happened during that tree's life!  

While on old trees, here's one in China.  4000 y/o ginkgo.  I would say anything over a few hundred years is beyond my ability to comprehend.

2000 yr old tree of life from Africa.

Neat patterns Joan, but a lover of going barefoot would have to watch his step. :)
