Hedge apple

Hedge apple, Osage orange, bois d'arc - we have thousands of them all over the ground.  They are hard now, but in the winter they freeze and burst, and thus provide lots of food for birds and animals.
Hedge apple, Osage orange, bois d'arc. Whatever you call them, we have thousands of them all over the ground. In the winter they freeze and soften up, providing food for birds and animals, and by spring they're all gone. (By the way, 'bois d'arc,' which means 'bow wood' in French, is pronounced 'bowdark'.)
