Acorns

Our poor, little trees. We’ve been in a drought for many years and their growth has been sporadic at best. We did have a wet spring and that was a good start to the year. Our Pin Oak tree in the back managed to keep a few acorns through the dry, hot summer. The break in the heat should come soon. We hope. (Don’t know about the break in the drought.) In the meantime, here is an acorn that made it through. You can see the leaves starting to turn way before autumn has arrived.
