You have to look down and step carefully during a walk in the woods…after a much needed rain. Otherwise your shoes get soaked.
During one such walk in mid October, I was greeted by a mirror image of the view from above. Trees – pelted by the previous day’s storm – still dropping their leaves on the path. It reminded me of those accidental (or not) double exposures from back in the days of film.
We were blessed here in the northeast a few days ago, as Mother Nature was kind enough to shower us with a bit of rain. I do prefer sunny days, but the current drought now takes a higher priority over bright blue skies.
Yesterday I ventured out to see what was going on in my small patch of woods.
The path, now almost spongy, was disappearing under fallen leaves, twigs and pine needles. Puddles were still visible and I stepped carefully to avoid soaking my shoes.
However, as I glanced down (and I try to remember to do just that)…I noticed a few of the fallen leaves looked kinda strange. Time for closer inspection!
