Oh Nuts!

Oh Nuts about describes it.
I've been missing a few days due to a bad bout of 
diverticulitis that had me pretty much bed ridden
for a few days and in a lot of pain.  The colitis complicates
it so my vacation plans have changed.  I'll be doing 
a lot more indoor activities, and they won't be pleasant.

Just before all this I walked up the tree line of our property
to where I knew the buckeyes grow.  We have two up there
and one always has nice blooms so I figured there would be nuts.

I found one right away buried in the leaves and then
another still in it's outer shell.  

We also have hickory nuts, this one with its outer shell off,

and an assortment of acorns, this being a pretty dark one.  

The buckeye is supposed to be lucky and if you find one you
should put it in your pocket.  I'm hoping these are extra lucky!  

I'll be catching up on your blogs soon!

I haven't seen one of those in decades, I don't think they grow here. We do have lots of walnuts, acorns and some chestnuts this year.

So glad to hear you are feeling better. Hope you all have a blessed week. ♥

No, not feeling better, although avoided the hospital. Pretty much sitting here all day with intestinal cramping and no energy. Seeing the Dr on Wednesday for next steps.

Keep well, and I know I sure like the peanut butter/chocolate buckeyes:)
