Acorn Shower

This morning, Olive and I were treated to a pre-autumnal acorn shower. Standing under a skyscraper of an oak tree on the grounds of the local college campus, acorns rained all over us, slipping through the canopy of leaves with a musicality that was impressive. I wish my iphone would have picked up this sound better, but you can imagine how frequently they dropped just by observing the movement of Olive’s ears.  This symphony of nuts is interrupted only by a car door being shut, but keep watching for when Olive realizes that these things are falling from above and looks up into the abyss of the tree. It was all very cool.

  1. She is so stunning! Love this video. : )

  2. I love how her ears flutter as she listens and tries to figure out what’s going on. Duke has been chasing the acorns as they bounce across the pavement.

  3. Love the video. Unusual event and very lovely to watch Olive’s reaction!

  4. Oh, sweet Olive you are wondering what that was. We have been having those acorn showers around here too. Chancy and Angel eat them. They smart a little bit when they drop on your head so watch out for them. Hugs and nose kisses
