It was rather startling to be poking around my garden, seeing what was in bloom and what else was going on when suddenly there were these sea creatures staring back at me. But, no that couldn't be. Sea creatures don't grow on trees.
These Things have appeared on my Calocedrus decurrens. They seem to be sort of jelly-like or rubbery. And they are rather disconcerting. Not at all what you would expect to see on an evergreen tree.
I've been told that they are the blooms for the Incense Cedar trees. But I am a little skeptical. I mean, really, have you ever seen a flower that looks like this? Maybe I haven't been around enough. (I call this one The Blob, though I've never seen that movie.)
And what about this one? Don't you think that it looks like it is hiding, lurking, waiting for some unsuspecting garden lover to walk by so it can attack?
Have a beautiful day!
