Where I share the world I have learnt to appreciate through my camera lens.
Wow.......so THAT'S what they look like straight off of the tree!How cool is that?!
Yum! I love hazelnuts!
Greetings! I am so glad you stopped by my blog because it lead me to yours. My dream is to move to Italy once we become empty-nesters...so I am just going to live vicariously thru you until that happens :) I am your newest follower. Looking forward to seeing some beautiful photography from Italy (my most favorite place on Earth).Kathy
I've enjoyed hazelnut candies while in Europe. I've never seen the actual nut before!
Very good picture and special because I would not have recognised the hazelnuts.Greetings,Filip
What a lovely photo! We love hazelnuts...just finished a batch of chocolate chip hazlenut scones! Nice to meet you! Have spent some wonderful times in Italy over the years with lots of wonderful memories!Ruth
Great picture - so that's what they look like :))
Nice picture, I love the frame and the color of these beautiful hazelnuts. Greetings.
Great shot of hazelnut.
Great shots, but all this food is making me hungry !! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Are you going to peel it? My first time to see hazelnuts hehehe. ^_^ Thanks for the visit!
Mmmmm, looks delicious. Our Pecan tree, is beginning to drop their shells/nuts, but the squirrels have been in sight. It'll be a race to who gets there first. As with every year.
Great photo. Yes we are picking up our first ones as well :-) Diane
Great capture. Wonderful to have freshly picked (or dropped.) nuts!
Oooooo, lucky you!I love hazelnuts.
I have never seen hazelnuts straight from the tree before,they are my favourite nut. Aren't they pretty with their little coats on. Would make a lovely display. I think it would be so nice to be living in Italy, It's so pretty and I love the food.Thank you for your visit and sweet comments. x
Hi Lindy, I have only seen Hazelnut in the store. I enjoyed seeing what they look like at harvest time. I sure do love to eat them! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.Hugs,Jann
Now that have seen them I want to eat them !
a christmas treat. :)
I feel like it has been a hundred years since I have seen or gathered any hazelnuts!
Oh yum, your very own fresh, local hazelnuts! What do you do with them, do you roast them or put them in anything or just eat them raw?
Wow! I've never seen them straigt off the tree!
That's a lovely image!Lindy, I'm sorry about the pop ups, several readers have also complained. I don't see them because my computer (and McAfee, I suppose) automatically blocks them. Try to block the URL, maybe it helps.
There are tons of filbert (hazelnut) orchards around here in Oregon. Oddly it seems to me because our climate couldn't be more different.Once years ago (when we had our house here), I was campaigning for a local issue -- going door to door -- and I walked over to some people who were working in their yard -- turned out they were harvesting their filberts off the ground and I stomped on quite a few (I didn't know -- and of course never did that again). (And they probably voted against whatever it was I was working for).
Hi Linda, Very lovely photo!Our hazelnuts are ripening now and the ground is littered with them because the squirrels basically strip the tree every year. Our tree is huge and the entertainment value from the antics of the squirrels more than makes up for the nuts we don't get ourselves!Hope things have cooled off a bit for you there. Georgianna
I had no idea hazelnuts were covered with a kind of "skin" that sloughs off...how interesting! Great photo!
I love hazelnuts, and what a great photo! Of course, I also like Nutella, which has that chocolatey hazelnut flavor, so good :)
Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
