Garden Discoveries

I was weeding a small flower bed this morning when I pulled out something a little unexpected.

When I looked down to the roots, I noticed the acorn that had sprouted.  It’s actually sort of cool to see how the acorn cracked open, germinated and created roots and a small seedling. 

A close up:

Here are the flowers that were being invaded by the oak.   There aren’t any oak trees nearby, so I guess a squirrel must have transported the acorn here.
