If you’re lucky,

October 18, 2012

while out for a country ” color tour”  this month you might just happen upon some of these. What appears at first glance to be the remnants of a tennis ball “spill” along the roadside turns out to be one of my Fall fovorites…the Osage Orange. I look forward each year to collecting them for use as a seasonal decoration, filling bowls or vases with their bright chartreuse color and appealing texture. In a temperate interior they  can easily last for 2-3 months providing not only a great burst of color but naturally repelling spiders in the process.

  1. I have never seen Osage Oranges before. I will have to look for them. I love their color, one of my favorites.
