Here are some photos I took last week on our walk in the neighborhood. One house has two majestic hemlock trees. I stare at them each time we stroll by, like a teenager gawking at a movie star. It has the most interesting cones. They don't look like regular pine cones. They're gray and tight, and very large.
I couldn't get the whole tree in the frame, without crossing the street.
These trees seem to have more cones this year than usual.
I would love to perch in this tree and take a nap.
