The oak leaves turned late this year, but are more colorful than in previous years. This view is toward the street showing the end of the drive way.
This oak sapling looks like it will definitely grow into a mighty oak some day. This view is from the back of the house.
And, of course, where there is sun, there are the Japanese beetles.
And if you look closely you can see the horns on this young buck which came to visit the other day.
Of course mushrooms are part of the scenery around here. This is the common puff ball. Have you ever eaten one? As long as they are very young, they are quite good eating. Their taste is somewhat nutty and buttery.
