These are only a few of the Hickory Nuts that fell like tiny missiles Tuesday night when the wind did blow.
The rain that accompanied the wind, washed the acorns in neat little piles along the driveway.

The wind stripped the trees of their leaves and now Prince can get his goat out to play again this weekend. When the canopy is gone, I always feel we have more sky.

The porch did not have any leaves on it Tuesday but after the wind look at the leaves.
The kitty justice is I did not show any walnuts that cover the side yard as this Kitty would have fallen down just like Jill.

Wowee! The wind really did BLOW!!! Yes we don't want you rolling down the hill. It does seem that once the leaves are gone it is a little brighter out. Do you harvest the nuts that fall? We used to have English Walnut trees and I made racks to dry them in the Autumn sun but it didn't work so well when it rained a lot or the Blue Jays found them.
but the homegrown walnuts were wonderful. MB

I pick up a few hickory nuts for Mimi to crack and enjoy but the others, well, I just leave them to our furry critters. Peace
