Hi KnightRaven!

I just dipped into this topic today and saw your post.

So, did you count beans/fog?


I have never heard of that before.... but it makes sense that it comes from a Scottish tradition. Seems like the traditional home of fog, Scotland!

Well, I know it's early. Wicked early really, but my oaks have started to shed acorns.

I noticed them earlier this morning when I went out to check on a bush in my yard, while I was out there, I stepped on a few of them and thought they were mulch that had shifted, then I looked.

After a few minutes, I started to hear the leaves rattle and a tiny THUD as they came down. I counted around 10 seconds, and another....

No squirrels around, nothing to cause it other than the tree itself shedding 'em.

First sign of fall perhaps? wink.gif

KSpring1, I am not a bean counter! smile.gif But, it has been incredibly foggy up here on the hill. Perhaps there's something to that....
