We had a long, warm, dry summer, that almost seemed like it would never end. But all of a sudden it did, and the rains came, though it was still mostly reasonably warm. So on my lawn I had an explosion of mushrooms, and most days I had a few to add to the meal at dinnertime. Yum!
I've been out and about upping my walking distance again lately- I tended to hide inside when the afternoons were quite warm. In the process I have taken more than a few photos of autumn leaves that have fallen from our deciduous trees, though this was the only 'pair' I could find... (By the way, most of our native trees stay green all winter.)
