Lovely little nuggets of colour. Walnuts never looked so good.

I had a walnut tree in my garden in the UK and autumn was dangerous as they always seemed to fall on someone head, and the stain the shells leave on your hands is veryyyyyyyy difficult to remove.

really really black stains jeanette worth it though !... my italian family love "shaking" the walnuts down...thanks for looking jeanette.

The walnuts we get here are just brown; your walnuts have such delicious colors! Here, it's acorns from the maple tree hitting the roof all day and night!! But we don't eat them - leaving them for the squirrels to fatten up on for winter.

Wow is that gorgeous Jane. I love the expressive way they're suggested. Just beautiful. :)

Beautiful, Jane! These are the most wonderfully mysterious-looking walnuts I have ever seen.
