I haven't posted about it yet, but I recently returned from a much-needed vacation trip to Florida. One thing I brought back with me:
This seed. Is it a coconut still in it's husk?
I noticed it on our first day in the beach cottage...
...it was on the ground right outside the back door (which we never used). The back door faces to the right in this image, not toward the beach. Hence we never went that way.
It's a pretty thing, although it was greener when I first picked it up.
I wondered about the green color -- is that normal? My plan is to keep this indoors over winter and then put it outside and see if it will sprout.
I have no idea if this is even possible, but I want to give it a try.
It sure looks weird in my yard right now. (Only out there momentarily for photos)
