Fruit Box

I don't know whether it's because I collect stuff, or (some might think) am a *little* messy... but I've made another container, this time a fabric box using the nests. It's beside me on my desk waiting for things I might gather up in my travels... you know, like this fruit...

We found it in the gardens at Heide on saturday. I've seen them before but have never seen the plant. No idea what it is, but it looks amazing!

Looks like a hedge apple to me.

Thank you!! Mystery solved! Not common around here so I was quite curious. Amazing looking fruit!

Wow, that is indeed a hedge apple and I haven't seen one since I was a kid. They used to be on the ground on the way to ballet class. That photo really resonated with me, thanks for posting! :)
