An Autumn Walk
We went for a walk in the forest to enjoy the fall colours. Lu loves walking Chelsea, so we let the two of them run along ahead of us - bounding down the trail, stopping occasionally to peer down a hole, or in a rotted tree stump, way up a tree and under dead fall. The walk was lovely, although a little damp -- but I think the dampness added to the intensity of the fall colours.
We collected leaves along the way; brilliant reds, intense golds, bright orange and various combinations of all. We also identified mushrooms and fungi, woodpecker holes, seedlings and possible faerie homes. Lu swears she saw a faery when she had bent down to take a closer look at some foliage... I am going to believe her... because you just never know!
