Several weeks ago I posted about "Nuts on the golf course," referring, as you no doubt remember, to pecans and acorns. At the end of the post I showed you this picture to demonstrate the size of Texas acorns -- in contrast to the wimpy acorns found in other parts of the country.
Acually it wasn't my only wayward tee shot of the day, it was my second one. We were on the second hole. There are trees along the right side of the fairway. Most of these are pecan trees. But a bit deeper in the trees I found some other species including a quite mature Texas oak.
Scattered around beneath its canopy were many, many large acorns. Some of these impressed me as being significantly larger than the one I had shown you back in October, so I scooped up two nice specimens and brought them home.
In the photo below you'll see in the center the same acorn and quarter I had in the picture above. Dwarfing that acorn are the beauties I picked up today
Texas can be a fun place, sometimes. Today, finding nuts on the ground was a lot more fun than searching for those wayward golf shots.
