Gathering Hickory Nuts

We had a hard frost this past week and the hickory nuts are falling.   Each nut hits the ground with a loud "ka-thunk".  We joke that we should be wearing hard hats.

The outer husks bloom like flowers, revealing the nuts hiding inside their shells.

It doesn't take long to fill a basket.

We have plenty.  Hickory Nut Tarts sound good.

This photo is available as a print, because I loved it so much and want it to hang on my kitchen wall.  You can find it HERE

I used the following textures:
Grunge Framed from the Minimay Set
Rue Marion from the French Connection Set


  1. Wonderful photos. Nature at its best!

  2. I remember doing this as a child with my Mom, such fun, love the edits on all of these, beautiful color.

  3. Those hickory nuts are so fun to see again. It's been years since we had one in our yard. I LOVE the wire basket filled with nuts - gorgeous!!

  4. Great shots! I love the second one - you can really see the flower shape of the outer hulls.
