Fall. We went looking and we found it, just up the road, although the boys were far more interested in climbing and throwing rocks.
I came home with hands and pockets full of leaves and a bouquet of the hardiest of the stragglers, a remaining few asters, daisies, and goldenrod, while they loaded the car (see it waaaay down there?) full of
sticks daggers, spears, clubs, boats and lichens gnome/troll beards.
We even came across a few raindrops trying to be snow! Brrr!
