Yesterday we went for a walk to a national park nearby.  The trees in this part were very dense, and much of the foliage was still green and yellow.

We came across lots of interesting things, such as this enormous orange fungus growing on a fallen tree.

We camped for a while at an opening, and I made a little tree house.


I learned how to make these little houses just a few years ago, from a friend who used to make them as a boy. I was hooked immediately: it is such a pleasant way to connect with the details on the ground! The only rule I made is to only use things already there and dead, so I wouldn’t cut a live flower to decorate the yard.

It was a lovely day at the woods!
