What is it?

It's a dogwood seed pod.
The trees can smell the impending Fall & are getting ready for their Winter's rest; the mercury, however, has decided to fight the calendar. This is usual NC weather for our shiftless season changes... typically vaccilating from balmy to brisk, sometimes within a few hours. We are lured into complacency that we have made it through another sultry Carolina summer, then blasted with the heat & humidity that leaves us breathless & sticky. We are taunted by cooler days & even cooler nights buckled in by humid days & hot nights until we are finally granted a least until Spring.

My dogwood is getting ready for Winter so it can give me this in the Spring:

My trees are very good to me.
Have a great day Puppies!!

I miss those trees. When I lived in SC I thought they were the most beautiful trees ever.
