Sweet Gum Seed Pod

It won't be long now until trees start to get their leaves and the seed process begins once again! This seed pod managed to hang on all winter.

The Sweet Gum tree has some of the oddest seed pods I've seen in this area. They look like Christmas ornaments (I've considered spray painting them) and are a bit sharp around the points. You don't want to walk around under this tree without any shoes!
