|The nuts without their husk|
|Bitternut hickory, shagbark hickory|
Even among the Hickories, it looks like there may be variations. I'm just guessing. I don't really know! Maybe it is a different nut altogether! It doesn't matter. What matters is Cheryl is collecting them for some unknown purpose. Most likely for a diabolical scheme to take over the planet.
The cooler evenings have brought out the hunting skills of the cat as well. Yesterday he brought me a live little bunny! Isn't he adorable? This is the second time Hiro has captured one alive for me to pet and put back in the neighbors hedge row. I think he likes the rabbits of this size best.
Possibly because they are not as fast as the larger adults. They are, however, more fragile. And he has accidentally killed a couple in the past. We'll have to work on his strength control in the future.
|A cluster of Hops I gathered.|
|Ready for harvest to anyone who wanted to pick them.|
