I was struck by the beautiful light next to a path through a wooded area. I hope it comes across in the photo.

A nice autumn wildflower, that despite it’s name doesn’t last forever.

My promised cute post for you. I thought there was an insect hopping underfoot, but discovered it was a baby toad. Here it is trying to hide from me under a blade of grass.

I have no idea what this is, but it was abundant in an area of the forest floor and I had a morbid fascination with it. Does anyone know what it is? I promise to post something cute next time.

Lovely shade of blue on two fungi, but the dead grass made them look sad.

Green cheese polypore and something else to the right on a tree. It’s been a very wet and humid summer, perfect for fungi but not for me or my black dog.

Ahh, my first week of retirement has gone by and I have the Urge for Going (Joni Mitchell) even though the winter is not closing in. Why? Construction all day and throughout most of the nights. I thought I’d spend everyday being creative and I have done some things, but I’m mainly just a sleep deprived zombie. Best laid plans….
