Last Wednesday was officially International Walk to School Day and while we do this most everyday my group of walkers have been particularly observant of all the changes taking place around them. From the moment we walked out of our front door we saw our boxwoods covered in tiny spider webs. The kids thought I did it for Halloween but we later discovered that our orb weaver friends may have had eggs that hatched.
Later in our walk to school we found some of the most bizarre looking mushrooms called stinkhorns. My son though they looked like a rocket launchers with a button and my daughter thought they looked burning matches. Thank the lord for my children’s ability to see past what I was thinking.
The leaves are changing, morning glories are busting out in bright blue, the amaranth-summer poinsettias are on fire and people are hauling out zombies from their basements for Halloween. What flora and fauna changes have you noticed lately?
