Wow Harriette, you were really hunting around Birds and Blooms to find this shot. Thanks for your comment, that's very interesting, I didn't know that the tree had an edible sap.

Looks like Sweet Gum balls. I would chew the sap of this tree when I was a kid.

Thanks for viewing my photo. No, I think they are from some type of gum tree.

Interesting pods! Are they sycamore?

Thanks, Judy. My husband thought it was a type of gum tree, too. A personal note --2 of our daughters are Hokie grads--one in '99 and one in '09.

Looks similar to the balls on the Gum Tree. Nice shot!
