The rain that has been threatening all week arrived last night. All week I tried to find time to get out into the garden and do some fall cleanup but it was not to be. And now the garden and the woods have a very soggy feel. I think that sogginess will be the descriptor of the garden for the next few months and my cleanup work will be done in rubber boots and raincoat. Being away over the winter for the past three winters has spoiled me and I'm going to have to relearn how to spend the winter in a rainforest.
I think one approach is to prepare lovely winter meals like oven roasted vegetables with olive oil and rosemary and invite friends over to share. They were delicious.
Speaking of rainforests, here are a couple of images from today's trek in the woods with the dogs.
We were surprized to see these mushrooms growing right up the trunk of a fir tree.
