A Tree Grows In Wurtsboro

In passing through the Village, we could not help but notice this magnificent tree. A kindly onlooker identified it for us as a Black Walnut. It takes twenty years for this variety to come to fruition. Perhaps that's why we were previously unaware of its mighty existence?
We scrounged around on the ground below, to find Nature's rewards. When the hulls burst open, they release the nuts. Both products are very pretty; I'm envisioning a gorgeous wreath. Please stay tuned, for we shall see.
