rake them up and mulch.

We used to wait for them to dry and throw them at each other when I was a kid.

That's why we waited. The tips of the ?seed ports? are a bit less needlelike.

I'd respond to that but I have to do my makeup and warsh my hairs.

I can't remember if these are the ones that hold their shape when dry... if they are, find some model RR builders and offer them bushes for their landscapes.

Feed them to your kookaburra? But make sure you ask him to save one for you!

Sorry, I've got a three-year-old daughter :-)

If they are candies, and lying all over the yard, I would shovel them up and bin them.

Then ask your sister why she has candy all over the yard.
