A beautiful limb. I was just thinking about Aldo and Rachael Carson this weekend as we were birding. I have birded so many years and it seems that there are fewer and fewer Warblers to see each season. This saddens me. I see life as we know it changing, not for the better.

I've bought books and CDs in attempts to learn about birds and recognize them to no avail. But I have to agree that I don't see the variety in our garden that we used to notice when we started the garden 20 years ago.


What a wonderful offering for your vase and the quote is lovely as well. During a walking meditation at a weekend workshop I crunched numerous acorns and felt autumn's through my shoes.


A sweet oak branch well displayed. I love oak trees, the shape of their leaves and their long lives thrill me. Still not over my childhood obsession with acorns but I suppose having to sweep them off of one's driveway might cure that. Happy autumn.

A bag of oak and acorn debris gets heavy very fast!


There is somethig so distinctive about that crunch, isn't there? In our garden it is empty beech nuts from a neighbour's tree but previously it was empty hazel nuts from our own, something we won't have again now we have taken those two trees down ;) Such a pleasure to see your oak twig today

It makes a pretty vase all by itself. The crunch of acorns underfoot (or under tires) sounds like a good musical accompaniment for the arrival of the fall season.

Yes indeed! That branch is deserving of such a display, it’s a beauty!
