Is That a Seed Pod ...

... or is that tree just happy to see me?

I noticed these trees early one recent evening as I left a small shop across the road from them. The trees are quite tall, taller than the home they surround, and they appear to be growing around one another in a cluster. I couldn't see all of them since the property was enclosed by a tall fence.

I tried looking for them on  the seed site   but there are so many.

Those are really interesting, don't think I've seen any quite like that -- maybe they are just glad to see you!!! Have a great day and big hugs to Hope and you both!

Cones, actually, from a type of fir tree, I believe. But a happy fir no doubt!

They look like a pine cone of sorts. There is a conifer near us that is just beginning to produce some too.

Spruce tree, hence spruce cones ;) Have lots of those up here, I'll see if I can find out what kind.
