In the fall, I love to see these hanging from tree limbs or lying alongside the road, looking a bit like green brains. They are the fruit of the Osage Orange tree.
Well, that is unique for sure. I’ve never seen those before. It’s always fun to learn something new. I like your texture and composition work. Very pretty blog. Thank you.
Don’t believe I’ve ever seen one! You made them quite photogenic! Margie
green brains, LOL! we don´t have these here in germany, i think. but very cool… love the textured asters, too!
They look very decorative. Are they edible?
some folks i know have used them as halloween decorations – witches faces… 🙂
Green brains, what an apt description. Your asters are so lovely!
Beautiful photos, great color with beautiful light and excellent texture.
Very strange looking indeed! Lovely shots Pat.
Never seen something like that! so very pretty!
the last shot is just beautiful!
I’ve never seen that fruit before! Lovely texture work. Thanks so much for sharing with Photo Art Friday Pat.
wow, I don’t think I have ever seen them, or even heard about them. interesting!!!
Oh my “Green Brains”…Never heard of this type of an Orange (can you eat them?) – So unique and interesting. Loved the pretty flower photo as well. Great texture.
those are cool looking. i don’t know if i’ve ever seen one “in person”.

Green brains describes them perfectly! I have never seen those fruit – beautifully photographed!
Your texture work is always amazing. Beautiful work. Have a nice weekend, Pat.
Yup, they do look like little martian brains, but are they ever interesting!!
I love what you did with your photograph Pat. The composition is beautiful, and the texture you chose is perfect for it. Are those the flowers of the hedgeapples?
Have a wonderful weekend!
Lovely texture work, Pat! Hope your are having a wonderful Saturday! 🙂
Love your photos of the osage oranges!
Green brains is a very good description. Do you eat these??
Love these images. Those green bobbles look like complex needlework. Wonderful editing Pat.
So free and easy.
Regarding a question several people have asked – hedgeapples, although not toxic, are not eaten by people. Squirrels can eat through to the seeds inside and sometimes they are eaten by livestock such as cattle and horses. They exude a milky juice which can cause skin irritation. They have a not unpleasant citrusy aroma. Some people believe that they deter insects, particularly spiders. Crafty folks use dried slices of the fruit in floral arrangements and other projects.
so sweet and beautiful!:)
These fruit are always remarkable when I see them. Great photos!
