Horse Apples...

Last year I was too late to pick up beautiful Horse Apples (aka Hedge Apples, or Osage Oranges).  This year I have been watching my secret location just waiting to see them laying on the ground.  Today was the day... It has been a few days since the first frost and I knew they would be there.  Today it also rained.  I knew I needed to get them before they ruined since they were laying on the wet ground now.  I trudged across a muddy field and picked them up.  Most of them were muddy and I had to give them all a bath but I am pretty proud of my freebie centerpiece.
