I had to force myself to go back out after getting home from town late this afternoon, and actually waited a bit for the rain to slow down to less than torrential; then, go back out I did. I wanted to show you how the past few days have brought an end to the season of screaming green, ushering in the first hints of autumn.
|Rain and wind made for a perfect imitation of October all day.|
|Devil's club leaves are among those starting to turn color.|
|Devil's club fruit - inedible by you and I... but I think the birds enjoy, and perhaps this has medicinal uses for the Indigenous Ones.|
|The Devil's club fruit will turn bright red before the end of summer like these already have.|
|Wild celery has gone to seed in a starry way.|
|wild celery - this plant stands about eye-level tall|
|New mushrooms are poking through the wet forest floor.|
Hope this post refreshes you, if you are living in the hot dry parts of the world!
