Pic Today 11/11/19


See these strange green
brain-like fruits on the ground
these days?

They're Osage Oranges,
or "hedge apples",
and they're falling 
from their host tree now
(Maclura Pomifera).

They're heavy, so not a good idea
to park under these mighty trees.
They'll dent your car for sure.

They're natural repellants to spiders,
so you can place them where ever
you have spiders.   They last about
3 months before spoiling.
