Bumper Crop

One of these things is not like the others,  
One of these things just doesn't belong, 
Can you tell which thing is not like the others  
By the time I finish my song?
 Yes!  I found an Easter egg!
  It's probably been in the flower bed since a late Easter Egg hunt
  when our grandchildren visited.
So far we've gathered 4 wheelbarrows full of walnuts!
What a mess.
A few still remain on the tree.
That's right--ONE tree.
We've had a Bumper Crop for sure!


  1. That's a whole lot of walnuts - and one egg! :)

  2. That is a lot of walnuts. Sure glad I didn't have to clean them up, but the egg is way too funny.

  3. Ohmy stars n garters! THAT'S A BUMPER crop alrighty!
    Bet you have to dodge them when they start to fall off the tree? haha So do you shell them? I'm not sure if they're the same type as around here but the ones here will really stain your hands so you gotta wear rubber gloves or else. lol

    1. I hear they are real treasures to eat, and every year I think I might try shelling them & picking out the nut meats....but so far, no go! A gentleman stopped and took the first two loads to us as bait in some traps he sets out in the country! Who knew?

  4. Oh my goodness--what a load! I've been slipping down our driveway, rolling on acorns--I wish we had walnuts instead! I, too, seem to find an occasional forgotten Easter Egg, especially when I'm cutting back some of the perennials. Fortunately, the Easter Bunny hides plastic eggs--otherwise, that finding would be unpleasant! If you try your walnuts, let us know how they are!
