These appear to be Texas pecans, still in their green husks, don't you think? The squirrels living in our pecan trees believe that they are really weapons this time of year...a time when these nuts are at their heaviest. One male squirrel at the bungalow is always right on target. The target? My head or the neighbor cat. The first time one of these babies hit my head, I thought someone was throwing rocks.
Well, this is war...I'm getting suited up. I'm off to search the Internet for a pith helmet! Kitty's on her own.
