WOW! Is he a surprise, or what??!!! I don't think trees would pick these concrete "faces" for themselves, if given the option, do you? This tree might be a girl tree, and she certainly wouldn't want THIS face! That's okay; it's not my tree nor my "face" and I don't have to see it often.........heh, heh.
My second surprise that day was these fat black walnuts, and loads of others filling out on this walnut tree! On my walk I couldn't believe all the walnuts and hickory nuts and acorns around the place.........and with the drought and no more rain than we've had all summer. I hope it isn't a sign of a harder/ longer/ colder winter than usual. At least the wild creatures will have plenty to eat in these parts!
I actually had yet another fun surprise left on my doorstep this week by my cousin/neighbors who were kind enough to share their watermelons and beautiful little decorative pumpkins with us! But I'll tell you more about them when I cut the melon and get photos of that and the cute little pumpkins...........and hopefully by Halloween, their lucky and cute grandkids will have some BIG pumpkins to play with! These folks have "green thumbs" all the way up to their elbows! They have a beautiful garden every year; can root anything from a sprig off a tree or bush; and get any kind of seeds to produce beautiful flowers and veggies! Thanks again, my Boltons next door!
