Unsolved Mystery (July 25, 2012)


Does anyone know what these are? Recently I noticed these pointy things growing on some trees. I wish I'd paid better attention to the kind of trees they were. I was near some Eucalyptus trees at the time but who knows? The remind me of spiked wrecking balls. My online searches aren't yielding anything when I search under "acorn cluster."


The moment I saw these I knew they would look cool painted in a metallic color. It brings out all their points and shapes. Now it looks like a cluster of birds. Gold birds? Sure.

If you have any info on these mysterious plant ornaments, please notify me immediately. I'm SO curious!

  1. My Google search was not very fruitful (ha!) until I put the word "eucalyptus" in with it. That clue of yours made a difference! It seems to be the fruit of the Eucalyptus lehmannii, aka "Bushy Yate." -Erica
