Beautiful Fall





A gift of fall...these beautiful fungus. They look like shells. I picked a few of them to dry for my nature shelf.  I hope they will dry well. I have dried others, but I don't remember ever finding any with this much color in them. 
Today was damp and drizzly. It would sprinkle, then stop and then suddenly a pretty good rain would fall. It was wonderful! Tonight and tomorrow will have more of the same.  Can you see me smiling?
I hope you're having a great Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Awesome pictures I thought the first one was shells until I moved on. I hope they look as good when they are dry.
