So, acorns<<link . . . harbingers of mighty Oaks<<link . . .

I shot some photos in my make-shift studio, and that’s one of the series of photos of acorns I collected during a few of our walks.

A bit of Topaz magic dust and you get a decent picture.

A bit too much, and you get . . . well, it’s interesting, but maybe not as wall-hangable.

It’s gotten hot here again, and it occurred to me I could use a nice oak in the back yard, providing shade for the patio from the afternoon and evening sun . . . so I threw a couple out there hoping at least one will germinate . . .

. . . I can practically feel the shade from oak leaves now.

The new Gallery of reminders photos is HERE<<<Link. The photos are only slightly larger (30-50%) but the details are even better there than here.

For them who have already read and voted, a different kind of treat . . .

. . . HERE<<link is a link to a post from 2015. Lots of hot air.

    There is a possibility they may germinate . . . if the wind blows them onto the grass . . . and nature takes over undisturbed. But I doubt if you’ll get the benefit of their shade in your lifetime.

    I like your overly artsy photo. Nice!

      I thought I replied to this . . . Oh well. Let me try to recreate my (now lost) reply . . .

      No, No, I need them, or at least one, to germinate where I put them otherwise it won’t provide shade where I need it.

      As far as how soon . . . believe me, if they germinate there, they’re gonna grow gangbusters.

  2. Believe it or nut…those are the most artistic acorn photos I’ve ever seen.

    I hope the acorns germinate and you do get a big tree to provide shade. Then maybe some squirrels will move in to keep the gorilla company.

    I was gonna’ tell you a corny joke, but I’ll just leave instead. Ha.
    HUGS and hope your Sunday is going sunnily!
