Nature is beautiful and carries uncountable mysteries in its magical backpack. Everytime we see a nature's marvel and think, "God, it just couldn't get better than this," mother nature presents something even more mesmerizing in front of us. Everytime science takes pride in solving one of the living world's mystery, nature just pops out another enigma of the mystical, right at science's doorstep. 

Something similar happened to David Latimer from Cranleigh, Surrey, England. He, as a casual experiemnt poured some fertilizer, seeds, water and soil in a 10-gallon glass container and left it sealed. After 40 years, when he checked out the sealed bottle, he was left speechless and his joys knew no bounds!
