                                        A head in need of eyes…..grew some

                                   A waist in need of guts……...grew some
                     A derriere in need of legs…….grew some
                   A pair of legs in need of feet…. grew some
                             A set of feet in need of toes……..grew some
                            A mind in need of thoughts,
                                                 Gruesome!


And now to segue into hedge-apples, the brainy looking product of the Osage Orange Tree...
for more about hedge-apples: http://hedgeapple.com/


This time of year you can find them along roadsides....get at least ten for your house!

This one is on the back of my commode, but I usually place them in bowls hidden in the corners of all my rooms...


See them hanging from the tree? 


They will repel spiders for about 4 months.  Mice aren't too keen on them either, so I  place one on each side of my garage door...The fresh green will turn brown and will become hard in the bowls.  
Toss them or compost them.

  8. I learned about hedge apples through blogging and then found my friend's husband had incorporated them into a painting. I found some real ones for the first time several weeks ago, but I didn;t bring any home.
