Acorns and squirrels... by thewatersphotos

Acorns and squirrels...

We have several oak trees in our yard and a couple of squirrels. In the fall the trees produce acorns which the squirrels harvest and, apparently, bury. Unfortunately, they must have poor memories of where they buried the acorns. We have LOTS of these new oak trees ALL over the place. Some grow up to make full trees, others get crowded and die. It is fun to find these!
How nice that they forget some and help to create new life. Sweet shot of this little tree.

I have a few trees growing in places where I don't want them. Not sure where the parent trees are, but they are not in my yard.

Nice pop of green against the background... those little seedlings are everywhere!

Nice pop of green. Nice to see they do forget some!

Thank goodness for squirrels. We have an invasion of gypsy caterpillars that are working on eating all the leaves off all the oak trees in town.
