October 20 - My sister Sugar, and two of her granddaughters, and I went for a quick walk at Hofma Preserve. It was the girls' idea to go for a walk, and that makes it much more fun. The sun was shining that morning but when we were half way through our walk big dark clouds developed and we started to hear thunder.
Marie and I took a trip to northeastern Kent County to Pickerel Lake Park. The leaves were changing color but not actually at peak. Still it was a great day to be outside!
We found Marsh Marigold blooming! This is the third year we have found Marsh Marigold blooming here in October. It usually blooms in April and May.
On the Larch Loop trail we always find liverwort. What could be better than larch and liverwort!
We took our time and enjoyed the trees, water, and fresh air. We were out walking for hours. Nice!
October 23 - A trip to Hofma Preserve with Betsy on a partly sunny day!
The next day it was a walk around Conner Bayou Park.
October 29th Marie took me to Aman park, we walked and enjoyed the woods for four hours. The leaves were very yellow, golden, beautiful. We walked from one end of the park to the other, some of the time along Sand Creek.
So many Paw Paw trees!
And Hepatica leaves!
There were more walks and adventures but some times I don't bring my camera. If it is dark and cloudy I leave it home. So here were some of the walks I enjoyed.
There is some thing about this time of year, in the woods, that I just totally enjoy being out there. Putting aside all the things that need to be done at home for a few hours. I think it is the best time of year.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the walks.
