Acorns

In one of my latest post I mentioned that if I had acorns I would fill that little green pitcher/vase that I found at Frenchy's lately but that acorn trees are very rare in our neck of the woods. Well after a brief encounter with my memory I remembered my brother telling me about an acorn tree next to the church in Corberrie (20 minute drive). So off we go mid-morning today and yes we found said tree right smack in the middle of the cemetery. So this was a double treat for me - finding acorns and visiting a cemetery. I've mentioned here a few times before how much I love walking around in cemeteries. It gives me such peace and comfort.

After the past couple of weeks enjoying mild weather today was not mild at all. In fact it was so cold that I needed my winter hat that I knitted in July.

We managed to find just the right amount of acorns but I think the squirrels got to them before we did...

I just love the picture of the oak leaves with your basket in the centre. Barb

I always feel like I am trespassing when I walk in a cemetery.

We don't see many oak tress around here either.

next year you will have to get there earlier (late summer) so that you can snatch up a few more acorns for your collection.

I am always on the hunt for acorns.
