#1 winter solstice 2009

This is the first in this year's winter solstice series. It is the first image leading up to the winter solstice and the shortest day of the year on December 21.



welcome solstice series! is this Osage orange? We used to have a tree like this in Tennessee when I was growing up. I was always fascinated by the shape. We saw some of these in Williamsburg when we visited last Oct.

It is an Osage orange. we collect them every fall and admire their brain like form. I have a stack of them in a woodfired platter by the front door.
