From Little Acorns Mighty Oaks Do Grow

I love acorns, their shape and texture. This may turn into a series of drawings of different types of nuts, they all come in such cool packages (shells). Who but God could have done that?

Did you know that acorns (also known as oak nuts), along with other nuts are termed mast? Mast is the "fruit of forest trees".

The acorn has been used as a motif in Roman architecture and has been used as an ornament on cutlery, jewelry, and furniture. It even appears on finials in Westminster Abbey.

Maybe I'll do pecans next.
