Can you identify these?

Here's a good one for you. Peter and I have never seen these produced by this particular tree. Can any of you experts identify what they are?

Looks like Camellia flowers that have been frozen and shed.

Nope. Try again. Hint: Not a flower, believe it or not.

Well done, Will, though I do have to bust you, since you've seen the tree and know how much I love it. Aborted cones of the deodar cedar. I'll go get a picture and put it up.
