Found this seed pod on the magnolia tree in the garden of the other house complete with still one fruit/berry/seed in the pod. I could of course try to make it germinate (requires rotting the fruit, scraping the seed, submerging it in water for a week and afterwards keeping it in soil in a plastic bag in the fridge over winter). It is after all a seed from the tree the late parents-in-law planted more than 50 years ago ...
For Tiny Tuesday with thanks to Barking for hosting this month.
