|February acorns lying in wait.|
Usually we head home to America for the month of February. This year, though, due to our upcoming move and job changes we're planning to go back in August. Undoubtedly, we are looking forward to all the pleasures of a Midwest summer - swimming, picnics, biking, canoeing, bonfires on the hill, and thunderstorms - and slow sunsets that draw out the stars. However, we won't see so many of these lovely acorns on the edge of the back prairie grass field near our house in Michigan. By August a new crop will be in the works, the squirrels just beginning to think they'd better draw up that winter to-do list.
