Awww Monday! May 4, 2020

A few weeks ago we took a long neighborhood
walk and I spotted an evergreen hedge that
had some little round multi-faceted green "nuts/cones" on the ends of some branches.
  I picked 3 and brought them home
to see what would happen if I put them out in the sun.
 The birds, the rabbits and the squirrels ignored them.
Then they began to turn brown and began to open.
I could see little seeds inside them.
One disappeared and I spotted this squirrel eating one.
You can see the last one on the brick in front of the owl.
I should have taken a close up photo but darn I did not.
Now I will have to try and remember where I 
found them on our 90 minute neighborhood wander.   
I want to know what the plant is called.
Tried googling "round multi-faceted nut" .
But got nowhere. Any ideas out there? 
The evergreen bush looked sort of like an Arborvitae.
But the "nuts/cones"on Arborvitae look different.    
Have a lovely day !


  1. What a great shot and I know little to nothing about plants or nuts. I'm pretty pitiful.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    1. Hah you aren't pitiful....you're smart....we cannot know everything! Have a happy sunny day! xoxoxo

  2. That's a cute photo! Hey, a round multi-faceted nut could describe many members of congress!

  3. I think it's a great shot.
    Enlarged the photo - no idea what type of nut.

    1. Thanks for taking a peek....someone will figure it out!

  4. Can't help you on the name, sorry. That's a great pic!

    1. No- tomorrow I am walking back to that plant and taking a good hard look at it! Thanks for visiting! I'll let you know once I know! Cheers!

  6. What a nice capture and post I bet trying to find out the name is driving you nuts :-)

    Have a safetastic day 😷😷😷

  7. We know nothing about that kind of thing, but we do know it is for sure a squirrel and it is of course munching on one!

  8. What a sweet photo! Good luck identifying the plant!

  9. The little squirrel blends in nicely with the stature.
    Hugs Cecilia
