The Daily Drive: Truffula Trees

There are truffula trees at Hogwarts. I know, I'm mixing up my book analogies, but look at these! They've been fascinating me for weeks.


Yesterday I finally got up close. It looks like a New Zealand Tea Tree.


I've been wanting one just for the color. But the nurseryman dissuaded me, saying they don't do well here. But then why is the nursery selling them, hmmmm? Maybe I'll give it a try.

Tootsie roll pops. How many licks does it take to get to the center?
