Sycamore tadpole


It’s a bit scary looking but this sycamore seed has started to sprout. I planted a bunch of seeds in a tray at the end of last year, but typically, it was a seed that fell onto a nearby rock that began to grow first. It may look like a tadpole imagined by David Lynch now, but this ‘blow-in’ species can grow to more than 30 metres tall, and last up to 150 years. I’d better choose carefully where I plant it.
