While watching the news last night I learned that Russia had found "an Ice Age squirrel's treasure chamber, a burrow containing fruit and seeds that had been stuck in the Siberian permafrost for over 30,000 years. From the fruit tissues, a team of Russian scientists managed to resurrect an entire plant in a pioneering experiment that paves the way for the revival of other species.
The Silene stenophylla is the oldest plant ever to be regenerated, the researchers said, and it is fertile, producing white flowers and viable seeds." (AP article)
Looks like a beautiful daisy to me! (of course) So I just had to sketch it.
Happy Blooming Tuesday!
