In Northern California, we’re having what some may refer to as an Indian Summer. With Fall approaching right around the corner, our dry hot temperatures have only gotten drier and hotter. It’s hard to imagine the weather getting cooler and that Autumn and Winter will be here before we know it. But the little squirrels in the area know what’s up and are quietly getting prepared. The tree-lined trails have been peppered with these little acorn caps, in anticipation of the glorious seasons to come.
“When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with it fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze.” –Thomas Carlyle
