Off to the nut farm.......

I don't think that today could have been more beautiful. It could have been warmer but we really had a great morning together at a local nut farm. We were able to walk around picking up nuts and looking at them as well as enjoying each others company and seeing all the splendid leaves.

Look at this tree!!!! It took Todd, Olivia and myself holding hands to hug this one. It looks so sinister bare and gnarled against the sky.


Tigerlily carried this little hazelnut quite far.
These chestnuts made my day. the jacket is like a million sharp little needles and inside they are soft and furry. I always really enjoy finding chestnuts all huddled up together in there little homes. These ones are here in my home now. I just couldn't leave them behind.

Looks like a lovely day! That tree is spectacular & those chestnuts are pretty cool too. Hey, can you roast those? I've never actually tried that.

We brought some home but never did try roasting them. I think that you can since they were selling bags of them at the farm. Thanks for stopping by :).
