DON'T PARK UNDER
AN OSAGE ORANGE TREE

Not now.
Osage oranges are falling!

They're big, they're heavy, they're hard.
And they'll dent your car (or worse.)

These peculiar "fruits" fall hard,
so you don't want to be around they do.

Besides being fun to throw and catch,
these brain-like green "softballs"
are natural insect repellants . . .
and are often placed in closets
and basements to keep critters away.
