The Onset of Fall

The colors are changing here, and I feel like it happened overnight.  Most likely the shift began when I was all caught up in Ethan’s hospital time, but now that he is doing fine by himself I decided to take a little nature stroll to capture some of the beauty that’s right outside our door.  I know fall will be short here, as Alaska mostly feels like a summer-winter place, but since fall is my favorite, I’m trying to soak it up.  Won’t you join me?


Oh how I love leaves on pavement.  Only small yellow ones here.


This shroom reminds me of Willy Wonka for some reason…maybe the flower teacup and saucer Gene Wilder sips and takes a bite out of.  I’ve never seem so many natural mushrooms and toadstools in my life!
