Fall foliage tour

Yes, I promise some foliage pictures, but first an update on the magnificent Shaggy Inkcap mushroom of the other day.  Here’s what it looked like yesterday.  It seems the cap is dripping away.  It is still pretty impressive.

So now for the colors.  We had some friends visiting from England and wanted to show them around.  The day was mostly sunny and the drive did not disappoint.

We also passed this huge wasp nest…

and this interesting system for stretching the trellis lines for this new vineyard.  It made for interesting kinetic sculpture with the rocks suspended from the cut branches.  I hope the owners have cozy blankets for those new little plants.

    Thanks for your kind words. New England is indeed a beautiful place at this time of year.

    I’m counting on you to keep sharing these wonderful views…..especially for those of us in the ‘hot zone’ where our color is in pinks and whites and yellow flowers. Not a bad thing but I miss the leaves.

    One of my favorite things about Fall is the smell of the leaves that have fallen. I used to love that about raking. We don’t do that so much up here since most of our “fall” is in the woods. The rest we mulch with the mower. I’m breathing deeply outside these days.
