Hickory Nut Tree

Being a southern girl I thought I was looking at a pecan tree in a field. But a local farmer told me this was a hickory nut tree. These nuts are very hard to crack. It takes a long time for these trees to grow into marketable timber. Still, it was still nice to see the tree full of ripening nuts and full green leaves surrounded by tall Indian grass.
