The Bench in Waiting | Ireland Travel | Scoop.it

Today as I visited Serendipity, which I do quite often for her excellent photography, interesting articles, candid humor and wonderful musings, The Bench in Waiting immediately captured my attention. Thank you, Marilyn for your inspiration that guided me to reflect on The Ol’ Bench.

About Those Acorns | Your Great Outdoors

About Those Acorns | Your Great Outdoors | Ireland Travel | Scoop.it

Awakenings and her sister site, catnipoflife, are both conscientious about life's connections to the past and those subtle appearances that expose nature as a diamond in the rough. There is so much raw beauty surrounding us on a daily basis that too often goes completely unnoticed. Take something as simple as the mere acorn. . . what impact does it have on the past, present or even the future?

 

Believe it or not, acorns are quite a controversial subject around here. Everyone believes absolutely that huge acorns predict a heavy winter. Of course, since most of our winters are pretty bad, you have a good chance of being right regardless, but this is an article from the Audubon society in which they take on the divisive issue or the season: What do those huge acorns really mean?
