Fall Color on the Forest Floor

Everyone notices the flaming colors of fall leaves, but fall also brings color to the forest floor with an amazing array of fungus in an endless variety of form, texture and color. Perhaps not quite as charming as springs wildflowers, fungal forms provide much inspiration for my work and also fill an important role of breaking down the forest litter to provide usable nutrients for the forest plants.

Join me for a fall walk in the woods and lets keep our gaze a little lower than we might normally - and be prepared to enjoy the view!

  1. Love the mushroom pics. I just cooked up a bunch of wild honey mushrooms today and made a delish soup.
