After a month of traveling, illness and rain I finally got to walk in some really beautiful weather. The arctic blast blown down south, courtesy of Alaska, had recently arrived dropping the daytime temp to about 45 degrees but the sun was still shining AND I had my sister with me again for company.
Here is what we saw.
Rapidly fading Golden Rod.
A flower, completely spent yet still beautiful.
My incredibly cute sister who helped me spy the following…
Then we came across one of my favorite things in nature……
An oak leaf fuzzy! When I was little I collected hundreds of these things.
I also saw a pretty mushroom and a poof ball.
I love poof balls.
The forest, I never tire of being here.
The nut trees are sporting a bountiful crop….and the woodland creatures rejoiced.
Only I’ve never seen a Who in red flannel plaid.
Crazy fast beetle crossing the path.
And that is all folks, thanks for walking with us today!
