This post is quite late but I have the best excuse. I was off the grid, in the forest, looking at autumn.
And boy, was it ever nice to look at.
A friend and I had another opportunity to stay in a cabin up north and spend our days wandering in the woods.
The leaves were changing and falling softly on the forest floor and most mornings were misty and magical.
Two of the evenings cleared and the sun lit up the canopy.
And kissed the tops of the trees across the marshy lake.
The water was still with the reflection of the changing scenery.
While back at “home” the sun warmed the cabin enough that we needed to tend no fire.
It was restful and energizing.
But here, for you, dear readers, is a challenge.
The forest is full of fungi. I will number the photos below. If you have the yen, have a go at identifying these lovelies and I will label them appropriately as IDs are confirmed.
