smitten

(Seen on Goat Mountain trail 217 by Alexi a couple of days ago..I have no idea what any of them are. I'd love to hear if you know.)

I am planning to transition into fall gracefully as there are so many things to look forward to. Color and more color, cashmere, boots, soup, crisp days, my birthday, pumpkins, my anniversary, tights...

If today's high of 87 and low of 53 are a sign of things to come, I'm smitten.

These photographs are fantastic! Almost as though I was right there. Have no idea what kind of mushrooms these are... I only know they aren't morels- that's a spring mushroom. Morels I know and love.

As for me, I would like a slower transition into Fall.... there is now snow in the Chugach mountaintops and lots of leaves to rake. Not ready!!! xoxo

Even fungi are gorgeous as seen by you! Our rule is just, "don't eat it!" (recalling french elephant looking rather green) I really should learn more so we could have some treats!

I love these!

I hope everyone is feeling better at your house. We are still in the yucks.

Happy Birthday!

Breathtaking! I always find myself taking pictures of fungus in the fall.

Well, I stumbled here by accident from Twitter (@Herbguy sent me the link but I think he meant to send a different one). Your photos take my breath away, they are gorgeous. If you ever take pictures of livestock, esp. cattle, pigs, or sheep, let me know! In the meantime, I'll be back.

Fall is always a much anticipated relief around here, and so we too are very happy to welcome it!
