Fun with Acorns: Part 1

-Go for a walk
-Collect Acorn caps
-Identify them

I love the differences in color, texture, and patterns each type of acorn cap has.

The height and depth differences

There are White Oak and Black Oak and Red Oak varieties. I'm no expert. We did our best to identify them. I think next time we will be smarter and collect the leaves with the acorns to make identifying easier.
