Everyone knows that pine trees bear pine cones and oak trees bear acorns. I’d never really taken a closer look at cedar trees to see what fruit they might bear, even though they represent the vast majority of trees on our land. It wasn’t till I had to find an out of the way spot for our dog to relieve herself some distance from the cottage that I took the time to look at the surrounding cedars. I was surprised at the clusters of ‘fruits’ I found on them. Early this evening, while my granddaughter looked after Sasha and tiptoed carefully through the ‘minefield’, I made a few photos of the fruits, if that’s what they can be called.
