I remember that last picture of the eggs in a basket, it's striking! All great pictures :clap
Those green things in the photo are actually starting to fall already which makes me feel “sort” of fall-ish and made me remember it from last year. They’re so gorgeous but they rot and smell if you don’t get to them quickly.

I grew up in KS, we had lots of hedge apples in the fall (that's what we called them, not sure if that's the correct name).

There’s like five names. So I call them green things. 🤣🤣🤣

I think hedge apples are the most common name. Apparently the main use of these trees was to create living fences. They would mold them as they grew into a fence and have the most gigantic thorns.

they’re also called Osage Orange and Horse Apples and the real name of the tree is the Bois D’Arc I think? They have incredible SUPER bright yellow wood.

I remember the giant thorns too! Stepped on one and it went right through my shoe. The trees worked well to keep livestock contained.
