O is for Osage Orange

I don't know if you know about this. I didn't even know of their existence until I moved to Cincinnati as a senior in high school.

They sort of look like softball sized warty tennis balls that fall from trees. And are basically amazing. I have seen people pinning them on pinterest and calling them moss balls. And then suggesting that they try and make some. You can't pin-people. They grow on trees. Andddd I am pretty sure if you stood under an osage orange tree long enough you might get hit with one in the head and die.

I really think there needs to be some awareness to the growing problem of Osage Orange Potential Accidents.  So today this blog post has a mission. Just be careful of Osage Oranges...and do not eat them. They may make you vomit, according to the internet.

And if you want to learn more about their plantlike characteristics, you can read about that on wikipedia.

I think it's important to take a break here and there and learn about the outdoors while staying comfortably indoors.

PS> sorry about the ridiculousness of this post. I did write 2 other O posts, but I think they were depressing and odd. Very unlike this post.
