We thought it would be nice to just take a stroll in the woods right by Cranberry Cottage before driving back to the city. What a perfect fall day it was. I little bit grey and cool which made a great time to go walk and look for more toadstools.
A fallen tree branch from a previous storm becomes a work of art at this time of year.
The tame chestnuts lay scattered about the forest's floor. This one came home with me as a souviner.
I love the sound of walking on the fallen leaves. It makes me feel like a child again.
"The gilding of the Indian summer mellowed the pastures far and wide.
The russet woods stood ripe to be stripped, but were yet full of leaf.
The purple of heath-bloom, faded but not withered, tinged the hills...
Fieldhead gardens bore the seal of gentle decay; ... its time of
flowers and even of fruit was over."
~ Charlotte Brontë
