I am reading Yotsuba&! manga ch.82, pg.16. Here's the page

enter image description here

What does the lower left panel ぼうしのどんぐり mean? Does it mean acorn which looks like a cap or a cap which looks like acorn (there are caps which look like acorn)? I think it means acorn which look like the caps that Yotsuba has seen before but I am not sure if I am correct. Or does the ぼうしhere mean something else ?

It's "acorns with a cap". As you can see in this link, some acorns you can find in the wild wear a cap, and some don't. She said ぼうしの to only refer to ones with a cap.

~の can mean "wearing ~":

  • Makes sense now! I couldn't figure that. Thanks : )
