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 !
