Images from my walk today

It is a perfect Fall day, a little cloudy with a stiff breeze, but cool and crisp and lovely, just right for a walk into town.  Yesterday I had noticed this large mushroom as we were driving by.  Spectacular, isn’t it?  There is a black tarry substance dripping from the bottom edge.  It is at least 12″ tall.  At this site, it looks like it might be a Shaggy Inkcap (Coprinus comatus).  What a great name for a mushroom.  And what a nice site for identification.

The “”wild” apple trees that line our road are full of fruit these days.  I’m sure when this was the road to the town farm, as it’s name Town Farm Road suggests, these were a major source of food for the locals.

And of course, the colors are in beautiful array at this time of year.  Here’s but one little colorful snippet.

And one of the mountain:

When I got home, this interesting rainbow was arched over Ludlow beyond our neighbor’s house.  It was rather flat and settled down in the valley.  Perhaps it was because we were actually above it at our altitude.
