Shades of Brown with a Touch of Green

In my garden I have a huge Maple tree stump. I am sure that the tree/stump is dead but in-spite of that, there is still so much life there.

Mushrooms are one of the things that are plentiful. There are a few different ones on it. For today I have chosen this beauty to show off. I like how it has a thick dark brown ring and it goes lighter as it reaches the center. At that top some green slime looking stuff seems to ooze out of the stump onto it.

Almost at the end

I took a walk at one of the local lakes saturday and you  can see that summer is almost over.  It seems that Mother Nature is trying to rush the next season.  Although the temperature reached 91 degrees with full humidity today I could feel and see that there is a change coming.  Autumnal equinox will officially begin on September 23.

I do enjoy the fall/autumn season but I am not ready for summer to end.  Due to work schedules and life in general I did not get to explore all that I wanted to.  My to do list just keeps growing.

What season is it where you live?

Mother Nature is a @*&%^

Yes I said it “Mother Nature is a @*&%^”.  

Today is officially the first day of spring.  I could not wait for this day as it meant warm weather and no more snow was in the forecast.

Well Mother Nature decided to play a few tricks with us this week.  Just a few days ago we did not need coast.  A light jacket or sweater was all one needed.  It truly felt like spring was here.

I planned on posting a few more flower pictures in honor of spring:

I did not plan on snow.  The news did state that there would be snow but we know just how wrong they can be at times.  So I chose not to believe.

Then I woke up this morning and what do you know it snowed.

What choice did I but to make the best of it.

On my lunch break I decided to take some pictures of the snow on the trees.  Other than christmas this is the only time that I like to see snow.  It makes the surroundings look like a winter wonderland.

The Fantasy is Over

Two days ago I posted that I was happy to have 70 degree weather in November. Well folks the fantasy is over, as we have our first snow here in New Jersey.

The weather folks said that it would be a rain and snow mix,  which it was then it turned to just snow.  And it is sticking to the ground and cars!

I guess Mother Nature said it was time.
