Searching

The weather has been getting colder so the squirrels have been extra busy trying to find food.  They take advantage and stock up on acorns while the dogs are in the house.

Lola and James were watching them very closely.

Acorn

While Glen and I were at Knob Noster State Park hiking the trails we saw lots of neat things.  There were a lot of oak trees that have dropped a lot of acorns.  This one particular acorn caught our eye.  It was cracked open so we could see the nut inside, which was reddish in color.  I have never seen an acorn with red meat and I am not able to find anywhere on the “all knowing internet” as to why it would be red.  We did get a lot of rain last week and maybe it had been soaking in some muddy water and the tannins in the nut made it turn red…..that is my best guess.

On the Hunt

Don’t be fooled.  Our front yard is chock-full of acorns.  Guessing he was trying to find the perfect one.

Not Just Squirrel Food

Since we got a bunch of snow and the temperatures are beyond cold, we have had a bunch of ravenous blue jays in our front yard.  They are on the constant hunt for acorns.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
