Almost Wordless Wednesday

Today, we were remembering another era of our lives, well before Shyla was born, when we lived on the west coast. Some pine trees there produced the biggest pine cones that I've ever seen. We can't remember what species of tree it was but here's the pine cone!
It's amazing, isn't it? Happy Wednesday.


  1. Big doesn't even begin to describe it!

  2. That is crazy!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  3. It is truly amazing how big the pine cones (and trees!) get out here on the west coast!!

    That is a whopper of a pine cone!

  4. Wow - that is one huge pine cone! Is it heavy resting on your legs, Shyla?

  5. That is HUGE! We usually have piddly little things.

  6. Wow! I can only imagine the size of the tree that created that pine cone

  7. Wow, it looks like it is as big as a roll of paper towels:) Shyla looks like she doesn't quite know what to do with it.

  8. That thing is a monster cone!

  9. Now THAT is HUGE!

  12. Sugar pine.
    "Pinus lambertiana is the tallest and most massive pine tree, and has the longest cones of any conifer." [Wiki] They grow all around our cabin in the San Bernardino National Forest :~)))

    Thank you so much for your wonderful blog! (I'm ashamed to say that although I visit every day, I get around to commenting just once or twice a year.) Thanks for the great posts on dog training, camera trapping, desert skies and so much more. Your blog's a real treasure, and a terrific resource. Please give Shyla a pat for me!
