Acorns and nuts

I don’t think I’ve seen a neon-green nut like this before. Must not have been looking!

I found this green-shelled nut in front of Barrington Hall along with these acorns and lots of other interesting bits of autumn.  I’m not sure what plant produced this bumpy little ball but the color and texture caught my eye.  I placed these on a rock near the front entrance of the hall where the morning light was falling.

If anyone knows what the little green ball is, fill me in on that.  Until that time, I put this in the category of interesting things that we usually miss because we aren’t looking.
