Tegn på efterår ... Signs of fall

I dag i parken så jeg mere og mere tegn på efterår omkring mig.
Men det følte ligesom noget var manglende....men hvad?
Today in the park I saw more and more signs of fall around me.
But it felt like something was missing.... but what?


Blade skifter fra grønne til gule, brune, røde og orange.
Luften var frisk.
Børn legede udenfor klæder om jakker.
Og agern dækkede jorden.
Leaves were changing from green to yellow, brown, red and orange.
The air was crisp.
Children played outside wearing jackets.
And acorns covered the ground.



Så jeg kendte hvad var manglende... EGERNE!!
Then I knew what was missing....THE SQUIRRELS!!


Jeg husker den først tid Mads så et egern i Texas fordi han blev MEGET spændt! Jeg troede han var tosset, til jeg lærte at det er meget sjældent at se et egern i Danmark! Men nu min nysgerrighed bliver op... fordi hvis vi har ikke mange egerne i Danmark, hvem spiser alle agern??!! Eller skal vi har om 48,000,000 nye egetrær i Danmark?

I remember the first time Mads saw a squirrel in Texas because he became SO excited! I thought he was crazy, until I learned that is very rare to see a squirrel in Denmark! But now my curiosity is peaked... because if we don´t have many squirrels in Denmark, who eats all the acorns??!! Or will we have about 48,000,000 new oak trees in Denmark?

Without a doubt one of the best things about Denmark. A lifetime ago I had a bad combination of two red squirrels and two chipmunks in my basement...it was NOT GOOD. Hurra, hurra for no squirrels!
