What do you see? An owl face? Pig snout? Heart? (It’s actually half of a black walnut shell.)
I knew this was a black walnut instantly. We have two trees in our yard and they are beautiful in summer and so messy in the fall. We rake them up and the squirrels come and get them. They are still gathering them now. I hope they get them all so that I don’t have to pick them up and cart them off. You are right—this does look like a pig snout.
😀 At first I thought that was a barn owl! Black walnuts, mmmm. I grew up with both Black walnuts and English walnut trees in the yard and neighborhood, thanks to the lovely Mrs. Winchester having an extensive and varied orchard many years ago. There were a lot of nutcrackers in our house!
