Artist Statement: More than a decade ago I planted two Dunstan chestnut seedlings on my properly. Almost extinct from chestnut blight, this tree is gradually making a comeback.
One seedling survived, and for years, I have kicked through its fallen spiny burs searching for properly developed nuts, with no luck.
This year, I was rewarded with 13 big, beautiful, plump nuts. There they were, nestled under fallen leaves, traces of a legendary majestic tree, slowly re-propagating.
