Watching Spring arrive

One of my abiding memories of school life, when I was very young, was the annual arrival, in Spring, of the horse chestnut sticky bud, sitting in a jam jar on the classroom window sill.  The trademark horseshoe scar on the twig, showing where last year's leaf was attached and that lovely fat brown sticky bud waiting to do its thing, slowly but surely.  I thought I would re-visit that experience here.  Between 5 March and today, 23 March the sticky bud has been busy.
