Sweet Gum balls

Near a sweet gum tree, the entire surface of the ground is covered with decaying sweet gum balls that settled in a perfect blanket in the dirt. I'm not sure when this blanket was formed: maybe last fall, maybe the year before.

The freshly fallen sweet gum balls are still on the surface of the ground - not embedded like the old ones - and are more reddish-brown.
