These are walnuts developing on one of the walnut trees in St Nicolas' churchyard. I took this picture on my way to Matins this morning, having enjoyed taking groups to look at the trees as part of the First Sunday Thing (nee Family Service) at the beginning of the month. I considered typing something about Jeremiah's vision of an almond branch ('God is watching') or Julian of Norwich's vision of something like a hazelnut ('it lasts because God loves it') to justify putting the picture up. But it seems enough to say I noticed these nuts developing on my way to say my prayers this morning. They don't look much like walnuts yet.
