SQUASHED FRUIT

It was Quercus glauca or simply Quercus plant that made me realize that ‘it is never too late to mend.’ I walked on the road to Jhika gully several times but I didn’t know that it was there. I thank heaven for this piece of knowledge.  When I saw the nuts of this tree,  ‘Scrat’ with the same type of  ‘nut’  in Ice Age, came into my mind. Before leaving Rawalpindi for Murree I had never hoped that one day I would be able to see it in reality in Murree.

Fruit crushed with heel.

Podophyllum emodi Fruit (Berry)

But no body knows how to make this stomach-like flower.

Gasteria bicolor flowers are like stomach of human beings.
