Acorns

Our house is surrounded by trees, many of the trees are oak trees. Our trees produce a lot of acorns. The acorns are currently covering the driveway, the deck, and the rest of the yard. Adam has a very specific place he has to park in order to not have the acorns dent his car.

You would think that the many squirrels and chipmunks in our vicinity would gobble them up, but I think the harvest is probably larger than even their gluttony.

I tried to make a pile of acorns to help the squirrels out but our pup seemed to think he should be helping himself to the nuts.

Soon those acorns will be covered in a dense pile of leaves. I hope the rodents stockpile them before it’s too late.

  1. We have a ton at our house too. I love it when their little hats pop off. I like the sound of them crunching beneath my feet.
