One Acorn

 

“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

And just look at the magnificence one acorn produces!

I can’t even tell you how absolutely amazing this oak tree was, I wish so much that I could have captured a better quality photo of it.   Even so, a camera image will never match the real thing.  This tree was HUGE, and its rich, vibrant, reddish-orange color just screamed for attention, it stood out so much from all the rest!  I don’t usually think much of an oak tree’s autumn colors, but this year they all really seemed to catch my attention, especially this one!  Maybe the weather we’ve had affected them, but I swear their colors were much more vivid this year.

My daughter and I were out together the day I came across it, and I snapped this photo of her sitting in front of it.  Looking at the large trunk gives you a little more of an idea of the tree’s size…

And also its age.  Call me weird, but there is just something about old trees that gives me a deep sense of reverence.

But then again… pretty much all of nature gives me a sense of reverence.
