Kermes oak acorns :: Bolotas de Carrasco

The Kermes oak is a small bush from the Quercus family that abounds in the Mediterranean flora. They are very common in the Portuguese coastal areas and it is hard not to become fond of them. They keep their green leaves throughout the year even when the weather becomes very dry and they provide shelter to shy rabbits and partridges. I never resist collecting their pretty acorns that come in shades of brown or green according to the time of the year. This week I made my own version in the shape of earrings, with a few twists. I hope you enjoy them!

O carrasco é um pequeno arbusto da família dos Quercus que abunda na flora Mediterrânica. São muito comuns nas áreas costeiras em portugal e é difícil não gostar deles. O crrasco mantém as folhas verdes durante todo o ano, mesmo quando o tempo se torna muito seco, e abrigam coelhos tímidos e perdizes. Nunca resisto a apanhar as bonitas bolotas em tons de verde ou castanho consoante a época do ano. Esta semana fiz a minha própria versão na forma de brincos. Espero que gostem!
