    Hi Folks,

    It’s Oak Apple Day tomorrow! No doubt the Queen will have a little celebration. 

    Marren & Mabey (2010) state:

    “Oak Apple Day is still celebrated here and there, notably at Castleton in Derbyshire, where the Garland King rides through the streets swathed in greenery and a fresh branch of oak is affixed to the church tower.”

    When younger, I saw many of these galls on Wadsley Common. The galls are caused by the little gall wasp Biorhiza pallida. The galls are round & lumpy.
