Miracle Day

California Buck Eye

I do not know who this was, or how they got here.

If I get hungry this winter, I know exactly where to go for an acorn.

A well-stocked larder is comforting.

As the sky lowers, my need for a cup of coffee rises exponentially.  It is quiet except for the sound of yellow leaves falling, robins discussing the ripening Toyon Berries, and strains of Classical music.

Dogs are asleep.

Emerson the pup ran in mud and jumped in the lake.  He really looks like a little pig.  I am serious.

I love days like this.

Hi Laura. The acorn are interesting. Is that how they are commonly stored. I always pictured tucked away deep inside a tree.

What I wouldn't give for a buckeye from California..
LOL, it would make a wonderful Bonsai.
It is the peace that fills you as you look into the heart of autumn and find the impending sleep.

Oh yes, the acorns are stashed by the woodpeckers. Blue Jays, other woodpeckers, squirrels and who knows else, stash their own, and rob others' stashes. It is remarkable how many are stored in that power pole!

And I do have an on-going love affair with Buckeyes!
