Gathering acorns

Autumn is beginning to show itself here, red berries on hawthorn bushes, leaves turning to bronze and tree branches gradually beginning to show. Acorn gathering has become a particular pastime by my two boys this autumn, simply because an oak tree resides close to our house, so it's a short walk to look over a fence to check if the farmer has put cows or sheep in the field and at the same time to collect acorns. I tell them that if empty of their acorn the small hats they wear are used by fairies to drink tea, but they don't seem too interested in this piece of folklore just yet!
