It’s Raining Pine Cones


Having never lived in the Northwest before, I’m not quite used to dodging falling pine cones from our very tall Ponderosa Pines.  This little gem came raining down and nearly whacked me on the head.  So of course I had to photograph it. I wonder if I could sell these to my friends who live in Arizona. Now excuse me while I search for my umbrella. Namaste’

  1. You could probably get a concussion from one of those hitting you. When they fall on my car I can hear it indoors, two rooms away.

      I imagine I could. Still looking for my umbrella 🙂 Thanks for your comment, Maralee.

    Ponderosa pine cones are falling all over my yard. Muffie considers them a gift from the gods. She plays with Kong inside the house but prefers PP cones when in the wild. We have about 150 cones bagged for her entertainment throughout the summer months. They are extremely cheap as opposed to Kongs. All our neighbors have cones at the ready when Muffie is walking with us so they can see her go bananas while chasing their feeble pitches. Life is good in the pine forest!

      I’m sure Muffie thanks you for that. Give her a face fluff for me. Woof!

    I can’t quite remember how it is done……….was in my childhood………..but these beauties have nuts inside! You know those expensive Pine Nuts in the grocery store. What I can’t remember is how the heck I got the nuts into my mouth. I think they have a shell, as I vaguely remember hitting them with a rock to break them and then gorge. Now, seems everything is vague!!!

      That sounds like too much work for me! But the squirrels around here do it all the time 🙂
