Walking In the Rain Again

CONTINUES TO RAIN HERE, but weather forecasts offer some hope: by Sunday skies are are to be clearing and cooler, with drier air blowing into the Mid-South-- not a minute too soon. Today I hiked/walked on trails and pavement in Warner Parks. The trees in the forests here haven't begun to change colors. But the mast is falling and along with it, ripe persimmons are splatting all over the place---a sure sign of season change. Terrapin turtles love persimmons in case you didn't know. The falling mast, coupled with some of the beautiful fungi growing from the myriad rains, vibrant color pops out of the dreariness. Here are a few pics I took this morning with my easy, little Easyshare:
