The snow has finally melted and been replaced with warmer days (at least for now...) so I thought it was time to go check on the acorn rainbow. It has been a few months since I last checked in and I wasn't sure what to expect. As I was meandering towards my destination, a flash of purple in the leaf litter caught my eye. It was the purple acorn, from my rainbow, some 30 feet from its stump. How did you get here, little friend? His cap has been broken, probably from someone's size 10s. (ahem, me, aka sasquatch) In November, Mr. Purple was still on his stump. Poor little guy. I left him there, to finish out his days.
The blue acorn had previously been missing, but I found him north of the stump, still surprisingly blue. In fact, all of the acorns have retained their colors remarkably well.
The red was hidden beneath some leaves as well, south of the stump, and the orange had been incorporated into some kind of web, to the southwest. All in all they look pretty darn good considering the elements they've been exposed to.
Until then, little rainbow.
