You may remember in my last post there was a lot of complaining about the heat and humidity going on.
Something wonderful happened on Saturday.
Namely a 30 degree plummet in the temperature
~~~ sigh ~~~
along with the drop in temps, that nasty old humidity blew outta' here too.
~~~ HOORAY ~~~
Time to lace up the tennies and traipse through the woods.
Even though it is too early to see any change in the fall foliage, it's fun to see what changes have taken place since we last walked through the woods (most likely last spring).
Pops of Goldenrod
Speaking of goldenrod...
Did you happen to see the beautiful arrangement Mary at Home is Where The Boat Is created with it? If not, see here. She never ceases to amaze me with her many talents.
I'm thinking this is a wild aster??
Have you heard of that phone app called PlantSnap?
Apparently you can snap a picture of the plant and it will identify it for you. I did download the app awhile ago, but didn't complete the next steps to fully activate it. Guess I'd better get with it as it sounds like a handy tool for these woodsy walks.
Wonder if it could tell me more about that interesting moss growing on this tree trunk?
This rock with the mossy top and one fern frond growing from it made me smile.
It sure was wonderful to be back outside enjoying nature.
Definitely a more pleasant experience when one isn't melting and swatting at bugs.
In fact it was so nice I didn't want to go back in.
So, I didn't.
Instead I headed to Lowe's and purchased one of their pre-planted mum containers. Prior to this the heat would have done them in before the fall breezes had a chance to blow.
How is fall shaping up in your neck of the woods?
