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.
