Details found on a fall walk

October 30, 2012

In summer, nature’s abundance and lush growth in the woods is intoxicating.  Yet when fall arrives and leaves are stripped from the trees, the smaller wonders of nature come into view.  Walking in the crisp air today, I found some amazing details in the forest.

A beautiful scallop-shaped fungus — just awaiting Venus!

A perfect, tiny little mushroom that won’t be outdone.

The intricate bark of a majestic old ash.

Fallen leaves settling into a cushion of soft moss.

Brilliant goldenrod filling a field.

The vines of summer creating a lace blanket in the understory of trees.

And my faithful walking companion disappearing into the landscape of fall.

Mother Nature accessorizing at every turn!
