Nuts for Acorns

It's really beginning ti feel like fall here. At night the temps are dropping to the mid 30's and it's been really windy the past three days. This year, I've fallen in love with acorns. They're so cute and small and perfect looking.

Did you know that acorns only appear on oak trees that have been around awhile? And that the tiny fruit has become a symbol of patience?

And have you ever heard that some people believe that plopping an acorn on the windowsill will protect your house from being struck by lightening?
