Memories of Fall

I found this fall reflection several weeks ago amidst the wreck and ruin of the abandoned and vandalized mega-church across the street.

Finding beauty amidst chaos ... sort of like life, yes?

Happy Thanksgiving

I heard something outside, rustling through the leaves.
Upon checking it out I found
Two cute little raccoons,
Smorgasbording in the compost.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

The Well Dressed Mushroom

Dressed for winter,
Deep in the woods.

A fashion display
of leafy cloak.

Fireplace Dude

I found him hanging out in the wood pile, and couldn't bear to throw him on the fire. He now has a special place to stay, safe and warm. I think he may be dancing for joy.

This Funny Face!

He sits in front of the house,
Waiting for an emergency.
Flat tire.
Dead battery.

Maybe it's the boredom
That makes him have
This FUnny FAce!!!

Behold The Sunrise!!!

This was one of those moments of wonder that make getting up early worthwhile.

Nature's Perfection

A perfectly landscaped lawn and flower beds surround the VA Clinic building in Hillsboro. I could find no pictures begging to be taken - everything seemed to be too perfect, too sculpted, too fake.
Until I saw this beautiful mushroom, tucked away in a corner of the manicured lawn.
Now THIS is perfection!!!

Further down the street, in a little sculpted "wetlands" area, I spied this wonderful face on an old dead tree. I had to turn the picture upside down, but ain't he cute???
