Leaves and an Acorn. Color and Find Out.

The harbingers of the autumn season (also known as "fall" in American English), maple and oak leaves are one of the most memorable leaf shapes in the season. It all depends, of course, on what kind of trees grow in your place of residence.
Acorns (or oaknuts), same as oak leaves, come from oak trees. Oak trees are quite common throughout the Northern Hemisphere, and they have been around for all of mankind's history on the planet. For instance, in Greek mythology oak trees were sacred to Zeus, the god of storms and lightning and the king of gods, while in Norse mythology it a sacred tree of Thor, also a god of lightning; in ancient Slavic mythology, the oak trees were associated with Perun, who happens to be the god of thunder as well
The maple tree is a common symbol of strength and endurance and has been chosen as the national tree of Canada - it even made its way to the national flag! A few particular kinds of maple trees are also capable of producing maple syrup - maple trees are tapped by drilling holes into their trunks and collecting their sap, which is then processed by heating to evaporate much of the water, leaving the concentrated sweet syrup. Yum!
