Last week, I posted about the large mastfall this year and included a photo of Laurel oak acorns covering the ground. The owner of Jasmine commented on how much my Laurel oak acorns looked like Water oak acorns and it got me to thinking (as her posts usually do) .
So yesterday, I took a walk around and grabbed acorns and leaves from the 5 oaks that grow here on my property.
It was late in the day so the photo is not stellar, but above on the paper plate are the PF oaks.
The big leaf and acorn with cap at 12 o'clock is Turkey Oak.
The triple acorn sitting on the leaf at 3 o'clock is Water Oak.
The two long acorns sitting in the canoe like leaf 4o'clock are Live Oak.
The two acorns and small leaf at 7 o'clock are from a small moundy bush oak, that I think might be Chapman's oak, but I haven't really dug into that one.
The two acorns with the lance shaped leaf are Laurel Oak.
Two posts about acorns in one week.
It's a thrill a minute here at Pure Florida.
