Images of Canberra: teacup tree

Kerces 6 November 2006 12

During the weekend’s adventures I came across what I believe to be an entirely new species: a teacup-bearing pine.

Not a new species at all – merely a Wedgewood tree, imported from the English midlands. They are being grown in greater quantities here, to satisfy the demand of teetotallers in the visiting Barmy Army. (Estimated number: 3).

That’s a casuarina.

One night when I was working a night shift (having pulled the short straw) I had some rather grotty instant noodles that I really couldn’t bother eating. So I went outside and decorated some newly planted shrubs (knee height) with them.
When the morning shift arrived I expounded on how the noodle bushes had finally sprouted, and some people to this day will tell you that noodles grow on trees. You won’t find these people at a Mensa meeting BTW.

Not quite as ancient as the Wollemi Pine I’m afraid. There is no fossil record of tea cups back in the Jurassic age.

There is however, some dubious fossil record from the Bugic age….

Very rare species that tree; I believe it is a hotcuppicus-earlgreyicus pinus.
