|can you see the figure here? with powerful arms?|
back at the church location where the class is held, i happily crunched acorns under my boots.
and now for something (not so) completely different: pretty, autumn-y things i have found along various walks to/from school and elsewhere.
having a camera is handy when you find a neat something-or-other and your walking companion isn't entirely sure what tree that unusual-looking acorn is from and you need to look it up when you get home. (it's from a burr oak, btw.)
if i'm *very* lucky, i'm permitted to take a photo of my eldest and even share it with others. this rare opportunity was at stribling orchard for apple picking. they had bees, delighting us both.
if i remember to take my eyes off the ground when walking, i occasionally discover a treasure among the fallen leaves, like a fabulous fungus.
finally, though it may have been unseasonably warm for my meadowlark morning meandering this weekend, there was some lovely falliage. (get it? fall + foliage = falliage? save me.)
oh, how i do love this season and all of its pretty colors!
