Hinkle's Red Walnuts

Yup - that's what they are called. Maybe I should apologise - it may be partly my fault! This is what I christened them while waiting for the discoverer, Jason Hinkle, to come up with something more permanent. And yet - here it is! The name was accepted and is now recorded and registered for posterity.

Anyway - this bizarre little deposit of simple but distinctive eggs was found close by the Wild Iris bed. They are small (in the 4cm area) and with a rich red-orange colour, including on the outside. Of the 20 I cut, these are the most exciting – one almost containing plume, one waterlines and one shadowing. The vast majority contained thin cores of featureless grey agate. So far they may not be winning any awards, but at the same time, there is definitely things going on in these eggs so very much worth keeping an eye on them!
