Although the woods hereabouts are bursting into new leaf the woodland floor is strewn with conifer cones.
Walking in the GreenAcres Chiltern park, seventy two acres of lovely trees, deciduous and conifers they are easy to collect
So I chose some fir cones, these 'fruit' of conifers, attempted to identify them using my copy of Know Your Conifers Forestry Commission Booklet No. 15 published in 1970.
A have handed in a copy of my identification drawing to Craig, one of the GreenAcres rangers, to mark my 'homework'. I await the results.
