I planted some white oak acorns is collected while hiking in January. Just barely under the soil, they need lots of water. It seemed to take forever, when the acorns finally burst, the little plants shot up.
They seem so airy resembling bonsai trees. I love looking at them. I've been watering them daily and can't wait to plant them outside.
I've recently started some native plant seeds for a butterfly garden. It's been two weeks and there is no sign of anything growing. I'll need to be patient. I'm reminded of a saying by my Grandmother, "A watchpot never boils".
