Acorns. Lots of acorns.

It was a good year for oak trees.

I don't know if we're seeing a cyclic peak in acorn production, or if the summer weather was just particularly good for oak trees, or both, but there are acorns everywhere this fall.

Acorns by the hundreds, thousands, possibly tens of thousands.

A good summer for acorns is a good winter for squirrels, I guess.

And the feeders will make it a good winter for the bird.

Really wonderful pictures, especially first two.

the acorns are deep in Northern California too. old time locals say it means a wet winter, the trees know.

Florida has seen a bumper crop of acorns, too--after we were buried in oak flowers this past spring! Any botanists out there who might know why?

Great photos.

Last year (07) we had an abundance of acorns here in North Jersey. Followed by a bitterly cold winter.This fall, hardly any. What is that a sign of?
