Leaf Peeping (and Collecting)

We collected leaves to dip in melted wax yesterday.

Leaf Collecting 1

I had grand plans of getting many kinds of leaves,
but we stuck to what was available on our street.

Leaf Collecting 2

Often times, the simple doing of things is enough to be magical.

Then we drove up to Hale Lake.
I forgot slipper sock for Laurel,
so she wore Mike's mittens over her tights.

Mitten Socks

She really does smile, I promise!
She smiled right after I snapped the picture, in fact.

Leaf in the Pine

The woods were full of color.
This weekend was clearly the peak in the higher elevations.

Foggy Lake

The fog, oh, the fog, but we are used to it around here.

Magnola Leaf

Hale Lake is just the right size for young children to walk around it.

Russula

There were lots of mushrooms in the damp weather.

And look!  Me!
This picture makes me snicker.

Carpet of Leaves

Scarlet and yellow, golden and brown.
Winds of October blow the leaves down.
Leaves from their branches
Are tossed 'round and 'round.
Now carpets of yellow
Lie over the ground.

Oh, I love this. You have beautiful, bright leaves where you live. I love Willow's rain coat. :) And Laurel looks as snug as a bug. We've been having some fog lately, too, and we can sometimes hear the fog horns off the water. It feels rather magical.

The fog horns do sound nice. Our children would love that. :-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
