The Beauty of Nature

Today I was walking near a pile of debris…

as I was walking up and down a slope to place burlap on areas that we are going to cover with wood chip mulch on Sunday. There is a shrub planted every place you see the blue and white checkered tape. Some of the plants haven’t been marked yet.

On one trip up the slope, a log caught my eye. I took a closer look at it when I walked back down.

How wondrous and beautiful nature is.

From Top to Bottom

Yesterday I found this big mushroom in the Greenbelt. It was more than six inches across.

Taking a photo of something I couldn’t see was tricky. The underneath part of the cap, also called gills, isn’t as clear as I would have liked but the view is right:

The next two photos show the stalk and the ring around the stalk:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge

I wandered around Lincoln Park this morning looking for shots I could take for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge. I took so many interesting photos and wasn’t certain which I would use for the Edge challenge.

Then, just before I left the park, a tree stump caught my eye. I knew I had found my subject! That stump contained so many different types of edges.
