one lump or two?

while taking an early morning walk this morning,
down in the back, down near the creek...

I came across'd a little band of squirrels.
joyfully oblivious to me (and the dogs)for a moment...
they went about their business
(or, busy-ness)
chattering and gathering...

so I just had to stop & see what all the fuss was about.
I had carried with me, my cup of honey-laced tea,
so the cup made a perfect little
carry-all for these golden treasures...
big, fat acorns!
(smart little squirrels!)
wishing you many happy treasures along your path~

Blessed be!

Thank you Lori for taking the nuts. This year alone I have had two squirrels take about 20 flower bulbs from my garden!!! JUSTICE SERVED!! LOL LOL LOL

I'm laughing at Missy's comment...but those squirrels make such a mess. I have to say, seeing the acorns makes me smile. There aren't any trees right in this neighbourhood with acorns...it's mostly all maples and poplars. I remember seeing big fat acorns like those when I was a child...and we just took them for granted.

And I love your beautiful tea cup!

Big acorns and I love your tea cup.


Hmmmm...on a walk many moons ago, I too gathered acorns...I put them in a bowl of lovelies and "utoh" WORMS! Better put those beautiful acorns in the freezer for a day or two to be sure there are no unwanted visitors ! Love the teacup! Judy

Hmmm, but mysteriously no caps... me thinks they will end up on delightful pinkeeps from you hands! A tiny ribbon acorn to sharpen my needle would surely be a magical delight! :) Jo
