Baby Pinecones

At Hickey Gap Campground, the place where the trail to Mill Creek Falls begins, I spied these cute baby pinecones in some of the trees. I had never seen any little bitty pinecones before, not real ones anyway. I thought they were so cute. I took several photos of them. I thought I'd share a couple here. Not any that I plan to sell because I can't do that here anymore, but these are still decent shots. I hope y'all like them.

The first one is of a single pinecone. Maybe it shows the scale of the cones against the tree. The next one has several little pinecones on it. I just love them!

Aren't they the cutest things you've ever seen? I'm glad we caught them before they grew bigger. I got one other photo that I really love that has a lot of colorful trees in the background. It is blurred and really beautiful, all yellow and orange. You can see a little of that in the top left corner of this shot.

Have a good night, y'all.

They are cute! Isn't it funny how we think that small versions of stuff that we usually see in larger form are cute? I even get all squeeee over trial size shampoos and stuff, lol

LOL it is weird, but you are right.

Thank you. I'm happy with them.

I love pinecones. I use them a lot for fire starters. I have a large jar that I mix small ornaments and pinecones in for Christmas.

That sounds cool. I plan to put some on our tree this year.

my artificial green leaves christmas decoration looks exactly like the green leaves in your photos but the manufacturer failed to add the cute cones. it would have looked more authentic if the cones were added.

LOL, yes it would have.
