I never cease to be amazed by the texture in these amazing little organisms. The cap on this little guy was only about 3-4 inches across, but check out the level of detail in the underside. J found him when cleaning out the flower bed a few weeks back. It's unfortunately been too warm lately to do much hiking, so sometimes inspiration from the yard must suffice. The bottom photo is from an excursion to our favorite hiking spot in town last month.
September is here - I always sigh a bit of relief when August is gone. The heat will gradually subside and I will take a deep breath and suddenly crisp fall air, colorful leaves and seasonal yard decorations will appear. I live for this season.
