1. any juglandaceous deciduous tree of the genus Juglans, of America, SE Europe, and Asia, esp J. regia, which is native to W Asia but introduced elsewhere. They have aromatic leaves and flowers in catkins and are grown for their edible nuts and for their wood
2. the nut of any of these trees, having a wrinkled two-lobed seed and a hard wrinkled shell
3. the wood of any of these trees, used in making furniture, panelling, etc
4. a light yellowish-brown colour
5. made from the wood of a walnut tree 
6. of the colour walnut

A mystery in a shell:
Will it be good or bad?
Will it be there at all?
Last year’s walnut.
