For the last month, the sound of acorns falling from the street trees has been going on around the clock. There is either the ping/thud of their hitting parked cars or the click-click sound as they hit the pavement, followed by a first bounce of four to six feet.
Here are a couple of views of the trees (and fall color) in the Alexandria neighborhood. The large oaks date from the late 20’s and early ‘30’s. We know that there was at least one and maybe two in front of our house at one time, but those have been lost at some point.
