A little pocketful of acorns I gathered on my walk this morning. The black ones are from the Canyon Live Oak, and the smaller light tan one is from the black oak. Anyway, the oak leaves from around here have hardly begun to change color & drop, and the Black Oaks won’t be completely bare until late December.
Still a bit of an Indian Summer here, with very warm temperatures, and just waiting for that first rapturous rain, to herald in true Autumn. More shots of changing landscape in days forthcoming, perhaps of the oak trees their Autumn turning… but for now I’m becoming transfixed & transformed on my walks, kicking through the leaves and acorns, enjoying myself completely!
OMGosh, these are amazing! I have never see acorns like these before. I usually only see the top part that as kids we used to pick them up and blow on through cupped thumbs.
Oh really? the little hat without the ‘nut’ part? I’m glad my little acorn hoard was enjoyable 😉
