Day 288. Pecans Bird

14 Oct

Inspiration for today’s Bird-A-Day art came right out of the blue. More specifically, it hit me on top of my head in our backyard. Pecans were raining down on me, thanks to strong winds shaking our Pecan tree like a rag doll. Until today, I had not noticed that our backyard was literally blanketed with pecans. Our dog Maddie had given me little hints but I had failed to notice. The last couple weeks, she had turned into a Nutcracker, leaving pecan shells scattered on the back porch. It’s only now, I realize she has been living it up, walking around in her own All-You-Can-Eat pecan buffet. Enjoy.

    Excellent idea. I would not have thought about that. Thanks.

    Love the pecan bird made of pure nature. The small pecan have a wonderful taste. Find a service that will crack them for you and retain the hulls, as they can be combined with mulch or compost to put in your yard on veggie garden.

    Thank you so much. I love them almost as much as our dog. Not sure why, but our tree produces very small pecans.
