Our pecan trees are yielding a bumper crop this year.
It's a lot like an Easter egg hunt. Here are two resting in the aloes.
And here are some in a more camouflaged position.
I'm certain I find only half of what's out there.
Pecan trees can get huge. We have seven in and about our garden. During most years all of the pecans are grabbed by the squirrels. But this year there are plenty for all.
This is the view when you look straight up in our backyard. Pecan trees abound.
Pecans are a nice addition to our Thanksgiving meal.
It takes some work, but you can eat them directly from the shell. You can also roast them.
I'll end with a view of the beautiful forest above our garden. This shot was taken from our roof. I was up there today cleaning off the leaves and hunting for pecans.
You can see why I like living in the Oak Forest neighborhood.
Someone back in the 1940s was very forward thinking to leave the trees as they built the bungalows following World War II.
That's it for today.
I'm thankful you stopped by.
By the way, the largest pecan tree in Texas and the second largest in the United States is in Weatherford, Texas. Here's a photo of the tree!
The pecan is the state tree of Texas.
