A Walk Through the Gardens

Aw nuts! But honestly, I delight in these coral-colored fruits. They’re so cute and puckery.

Though not good for human consumption, the buckeye is an amazingly beautiful tree that will become quite large (50-70 ft.). It graces the landscape with flowers in early summer and vibrant colors in autumn.

This is the fruit from a smaller cultivar, a Bottle Brush Buckeye, that grows in my front yard.
