This year since autumn didn't "officially" start until 8:09 at night here on the 22nd, we went for our nature walk on Thursday, September 23rd. Here are some pictures from our walk. . .
|Common snowberries! |
I think snowberries are so pretty!

|Most of the douglas spirea has turned brown now.|
|My favorite black cottonwood trees|
|A horse chestnut (not the kind of chestnut to eat!)|
|The lake had hardly any birds on it. I wonder where they were!?|
(My younger daughter took this picture)
|I think these are autumn crocuses. |
Autumn crocuses are very poisonous and do not have an antidote,
so have your children look at them from a distance.
|Though very poisonous, they sure are beautiful!|
