Thoughts, ideas, photos, and stories.



So that’s what corn on the cob looks like when it’s growing. A child might think that’s what it is.

You may remember my recent post about the Colorado blue spruce. In that one, I compared the cones to candles standing on a Christmas tree. With our recent sun and rain, the cones on this spruce have grown quickly and are having trouble supporting their own weight.

I wonder if they will eventually hang down the wayΒ  cones onΒ so many other evergreens do. I can see that I’ll have to do a followup post whenever that happens.

  6. I want a corncob tree! πŸ˜‰ Wouldn’t that be great? I love corn on the cob. My mom used to say that when he was little, my brother, who died last year, would say about corn on the cob, “I’m not eating that! It has hair on it!”

  7. I saw a similar tree around here this past weekend and “Christmas tree with candles” was exactly my thought too. πŸ˜€
