Look Down

Happy Autumn everyone.  It is my favorite season. perhaps it's the colors. I'm partial to 
reds & yellows to begin with. Ask anyone who has been in my house. 

The brilliant Staghorn Sumac fruit always grabs my attention this time of year. 
If you look closely the individual little nodules are beautiful in themselves. 

 So much beauty in my neighborhood park. You need to pay attention to the details 
and look down while you are walking. I just happened to spot these. 

They are pearlescent with some smokey sooty areas. I took loads of pictures of them.
Two days later they were liquefied. Glad I caught them at their prime. 
Thanks to a friend who saw my Instagram post of these I now know they are 

They are edible . Good to know. 

 A view from above on a flight to see the colors at their peak last week. 

These gorgeous lichen look like white roses. 

Now I need to get busy in the studio & put some of this inspiration to good use. 

Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment. Would love to hear from you.
