88 – Osage Orange

Visiting the Wenatchee Valley for a few days, we decided to make it a hike as we set off along the trails that lead around the ponds at Rock Island, Washington in search of a winter’s worth of Osage Oranges.

Brian often runs his dog around the ponds so was pretty sure he knew where the Osage Orange bushes were, and sure enough, he led us to some.

Used in the home to ward off spiders, we’ve gathered them before. Go here – http://really-rose.blogspot.com/2009/12/osage-oranges.html – to read more about them. Meanwhile, here are more photos from our hike.
