When I was very young I was on a camp and we had gone for a bushwalk. I, as
usual, strayed from the path with a friend. We were in a deep thicket when
my friend said something to scare me from a film we had just seen. Being
only 5 or 6 I ran behind a large tree and lo and behold within the hollowed
root area of this tree in the middle of the bush was a complete set of tea
cups and saucers. They were unusual in design, but very clean and laid out
neatly. We went to tell our teacher but she didn't believe us (or care).
I'm not sure if i've conveyed the strangeness of the episode - but I'd
forgotten it until I read the above and when I think of it now it still
seems weird.
