Okay, it's actually Saturday night, but I had SUCH a lovely afternoon that I want to share it now. After coming home from a very fun day at Sew & Home, I took my kids and headed straight for the park. The sun was so hot and sky was so blue. There was no wind - the air was so incredibly silent. We were the only ones in the park. While my kids climbed trees, I rested on a quilt be the cattails and journalled about all the great people I met today.
I love the long shadows of autumn, and the big waxy yellow leaves of these poplar trees. I love the way leaves decay. I love the way they smell.
The cattails are three times as tall as they were last time I was here!
And on the way home, I had do dig out my camera again for these! They are exposed poplar roots that caught the setting afternoon sun so nicely. Aren't these intricate!? Incredible.
