We seem to have an abundance of brown now. The grass remains green, but most of the brilliant colors of fall are gone. You can still see a few red and yellow leaves clinging to the bare branches here and there.
The leaves that were once vibrant are now browning and beginning to dry out.
I found all these acorns lying on the ground beneath an oak tree. I gathered them up and brought them indoors to add to my fall decor.
They are fun to look at. Some are big, some tiny. Some with "hats", some without.
Cute little nuts ... winter food for a squirrel or a seed waiting to be planted and grown into a mighty oak.
The acorn ... a sure sign of Autumn.
