Trees… I might need to make another post for this as I’ve learnt a lot, thanks to Nutcracker on BirdForum, or Sciadopitys on Flickr. I’ve started a wee cone collection which is on 11 now I think. Helps that I’ve found an Arboretum at Mortonhall, not far away from my house 🙂

Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been out but when I’m not out I’m usually trying to revise as I’ve got my exams looming. Biology in 2 days and maths a week after that. So I better go and get revising now!
