this or that thursday: acorns

Imagine my delight when I realized that acorns come in a lovely shade of green. They're even topped off with a beautiful little intricate hat. I guess I haven't been very observant all these years because I only remembered the little brown ones.

  32. Lovely captures - they are indeed different from the common brown ones we think of.

    But I am the only who thinks they look a little bit like the Green Pigs in Angry birds? The ones with the helmets that are so hard to kill??

    OK, maybe I'm deranged!
