Here's One The Squirrels Didn't Eat

It's tradition isn't it, to have pine cones at Christmas. But did you know that in the UK, the best time to gather them is in August. before the squirrels and deer munch them.
They are rather lovely aren't they!

A very simple elegant image. Fancy squirrels eating them - nothing eats them over here.

They must be hard to eat - very woody! Wonder where that tradition comes from!

@merrelyn oh they are scoffed!!
@casablanca it's quite large about 4". How's your back doing??

@Dawn brillliant camera
@grammyn but I didn't try hard either- clever camera

@mittens thank you very much
@Weezilou D'you know- I hadn't noticed the monochromeness, thank you
@maggiemae they gnaw away to get the seeds when they are softer in the summer
