Monochrome Monday: A Single Leaf

One of many that will be dotting the ground in the coming weeks as the autumn season progresses. Do you have a favorite thing when it comes to Fall?

Wandering Wednesday: West Bloomfield Woods Nature Preserve Trail

Monochrome Monday: Touch Me Not

Wandering Wednesday: Return to Don Green Nature Way

It’s been awhile since I hiked along this particular trail. It’s just as green as it was last year, perhaps greener due to all the summer rain we in Michigan have received recently.

This particular day lily was captured at Wolcott Mill Metro Park back in July 2021. Fun fact: day lilies are used in Chinese cuisine and are used in dishes such as hot and sour soup, daylily soup, Buddha’s delight and moo shu pork.
