Ok went and got close ups. . . I think a few of you guessed correctly about the kind of tree. This one had fallen on the ground. Well, lots had but I took a photo of that one.
I don't know why people can't see my tree branch photo. . . I even took it off and re-loaded it. I have always seen it.
I have no idea what kind of tree this is but when I looked up at the bus stop this morning, I saw all, or most all, of the leaves were off the limbs and yet the tree was FULL. It's branches were laden with those round little spikey cones. I had never seen this on a tree before and found it interesting. This is not the whole tree but a side branch of a big tree. Of anyone knows what kind of a tree it is, please let me know. (Click on it to enlarge.)
