Fall comes and goes so quickly around here that you have to act fast if you want to enjoy the changing leaves. I wanted to get a family picture outside in the glorious autumnal colors this past weekend, but neither our health nor the weather allowed it. A stomach flu has been working its way through our house, so at any given moment, at least one of us was moaning and vomiting. Even if we all had been feeling good, the rain and grey skies made for poor light. I had to settle for a walk in the woods and pictures of wet foliage.
Birches are beautiful year-round,
but I especially love them in the fall.
Elderberries, heavy with raindrops.
Isn't this little bluebell sweet?
She's the only flower left in my rock garden.
No wonder my girls pick the mushrooms off their pizza . . .
I like this glass mushroom much better.
It glows in the evening dusk.
Dinner last night: broth, water, applesauce (I'm not kidding when I say we've been sick!)
