Heart in Nut - Guest Heart Thursday
The black walnuts haven't begun their fall ploppings--though the squirrels are going nuts carrying them to and fro. With their bright green coverings, they are quite large. It is hard to see how the squirrels are able to carry the walnuts in their teeth the way they do!
Every year I pull up myriads of small trees, left from where the squirrels hid them for winter. Yes, they do hide them just the way the books say.
As you see, here is a half shell--with a perfect heart--one of the small black walnuts one can find within the larger covering.
