Three Leaves and a Bracken

I found these three recently fallen birch leaves nestled on a bed of bracken fern.

I'm glad I caught them when I did - the next time I looked, the wind had blown the heart away.

Orange Mushroom

I went for a short walk in the woods,
Now that the rain has stopped - for a few hours.

I found autumn.
Turning into winter.

Most of the colors were muted
greens, oranges, reds and browns.

I found this mushroom
In the middle of the path ...

Its color lured me first,
Then it's shape.

With all of the rain we've had here lately, it was amazing to find this small patch of dry concrete. And guess what? It was in the shape of a heart!!!

It is slightly out of focus, I know.
But I couldn't resist sharing ...
How even the "dirtiest" heart
Has great beauty!!!

This bird box was originally meant to entice native bluebirds back into our area.

The local squirrels, always on the watch for a warm comfy place to live, have altered the opening - into a heart!

Dried Puddle

Just a hint
Of a heart
Here in the gravel
Of the parking lot.

If I found it again today
It would be overflowing
Rain. Rain. Rain. Rain.

But yesterday
It was there
Waiting to be filled
With today's abundance.
