rabbit again

Rabbit was grinding her coffee and muttering some grumpy morning litany to the squirrel digging in her lettuce patch just outside her window, when she noticed one of the eggs was missing.  She found it cracked open in a splash of sunlight on her kitchen floor.  The floor cried out for a vigorous sweeping, but that could wait.  Inside the pale brown egg was an odd little acorn like seed, with a slender oaken body and a fancy scaled cap.  Rabbit took the seed out to her garden and placed it in one of the holes squirrel had just dug in her lettuce patch.  “Hmmm...” thought Rabbit, “I wonder what will grow there?”
