Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “U is for….” Umbrellas. (from last March, this is a public art display at the time)
I know it is Rose Week over at the 365 Days in Nature group, but I ran out of interest before I ran out of roses, so just posted this pic of my favorite amanita muscaria mushrooms….
…taken yesterday. Good thing I took it yesterday, because when I walked by this morning, I saw this landscaping truck, and the “hill” that these were growing on yesterday all cleared.
Sigh. Shame. But pretty sure the spores are still there so hopefully, over the next couple of weeks, some more will return.
I did find a few more across the road though. Not massive clusters of them, but colourful and whimsical all the same.
There were some brown mushrooms out there too…
And my baby troll looked like he took a bite. (I couldn’t resist…)
There were quite a few birds out and about this morning…
One of which, you have to look pretty closely to see….
After work, I found all kinds of fall colours…
Some of the fallen leaves are MASSIVE.
During my walk home tonight, I saw that our quirky artist neighbor is working on a new sand sculpture…
The nose of the existing sculpture has fallen off. Which begs the question…”how does she smell?” Dunno, I didn’t get close enough to sniff her.
Sometimes, I feel like something is watching me. LOL!
Fish in trees….
….and supermodel Kate Moss. (groan again)
Halloween decorations are starting to appear.
Once I was home, I put on my pajamas, put my feet up, had some tea and took it easy. I have been feeling VERY tired over the last few days (maybe I’ve been fighting something, or maybe the past couple of months were catching up to me) so Dennis and I have deemed tonight and tomorrow night “rest nights”. We sent out for pizza for dinner tonight (but we will cook tomorrow). We had a half and half, my half was grilled veggie with half cheese.
(the rest of my meals today were super healthy though, oatmeal for breakfast, green juice, salad (made with arugula, butternut squash, dried tomato and light feta), a cup of the split pea soup I made last night and a honeycrisp apple. (first of the season)
Now, I’m going to hit publish and get to bed early. I’m hoping my energy will be back to 100% by tomorrow. Have a great Wednesday all.
