Winter is here, we don’t have much snow ,but the temperatures are deep below zero.I had my walk anyway,in the forest behind my home.For the first time I’ve seen so many cupules  on beeches-then I remembered we had extremely hot and dry summer.Birds will be thankful………………………………maybe even I will try these seeds, in Europe they were eaten centuries ago,I only need a good recipe 😉
