Comparing Acorns

While in Michigan I collected a few treasures for Grace. I came home with an assortment of leaves that are currently being pressed between heavy books, several pine cones and a single acorn (Meme actually found the acorn and my efforts to find more were fruitless).

When Grace saw the acorn (on the right) that we believe fell from a Northern Red Oak tree, she was shocked by its enormous size. She immediately went to her nature table and found an acorn (on the left) that came from the Live Oak in our backyard. Quite a difference wouldn't you say? Perhaps now I have a better understanding why the squirrels in Michigan are double the size of our furry friends here in Florida!
