So yesterday while outside with the two pooches and the kid, I saw something weird in the grass.
I picked it up and it was an acorn! It was still wrapped in something? From the tree I'm assuming. Well... I thought it was an acorn, but was corrected by Chris today that it's a seed that looks similar to an acorn. All that's missing is the little brown top thingy?
Anyways, what I find interesting is we don't have these trees near our house... Not anywhere from what I'm aware of. And while I figure there's probably a squirrel that brought them to the yard, I think I found them for a reason. There's four that I have in the house right now.
But I was wondering if there's a significant meaning behind Acorn's? Maybe?
The ancient tree of the Druids and one of the Fairy Triad: "oak, ash and thorn." To protect your house, tie two twigs of oak with red thread to form an equal-armed cross and hang it in the house. Acorns placed in the window guard against lightning. Burning oak in a fireplace will draw off illness. Planting an acorn in the dark of the Moon will bring you money.
