Everything is changing colour right now!

In the fall – when the rains come and the temperature dips an amazing thing happens in our temperate rain forests – the fungus’ appear.

They grow from the moss and lichens that cover the ground and trees; they push up ten times their weight in forest loam to reach the air; they are amazing; they come in many colours shapes and forms and I find them all fascinating.

The fungus names are evocative as well, fairy caps and puff balls.  They come in a myriad of colours, white, brown, red and even blue!

Growing from tree branches dripping with mosses, they appear like magic at this time of year - fairy caps these are sometimes called.

The mossy grounds around were steaming in the sun!

Yesterday was a wet day.  Well, except for the glorious hour we spend spent walking around Morrell Sanctuary.  The sun came out and illuminated the forest around us.  The air was thick with moisture at times as the sun evaporated the water from the ground and the trees, moss and tumbling leaves glistened and glimmered with water.  The sun stayed out for most of our walk and as we left the park the skies were clouding over again.

The canopy changes overhead as we wander through the paths at Morrell.

All quiet on the lake,

Depending on where we were in the park, the canopy overhead was dappled green and blue, or red, yellow, green and blue and sometimes simply blue!

There were Mallards on the lake – simply floating over the surface of the quiets waters adding a wonderful grace note to the morning.

I hope that you enjoy the discovery.

    Gorgeous photos! I often find that the light takes on an almost magical air when the sun comes out after it’s been raining. Your photos certainly capture that.
