I photographed these magical little toadstools at Hollard Garden with the other autumn colors in my last post. Every time I see a them, I feel the urge to write a children's story about a tiny, little world. Alas, I am not disciplined enough to do it; so I settle for taking some macro shots.
Before you start nit-picking about my choice of words, there is no difference between mushrooms and toadstool, although the term 'toadstools' has gradually become applied to toxic types. http://www.patient.co.uk/doctor/Mushroom-and-Toadstool-Toxicology.htm and http://knowledgenuts.com/2014/01/05/difference-between-toadstools-and-mushrooms/
Once or twice a year, when we can't think of anywhere specific to go, we drive around Mt Taranaki and meander down some beach roads. This weekend was one of those times, since the weather forgot it's suppose to be getting cooler as we head into autumn.
Lots of people brought their dogs to play in the sand and water.
I take a photo of these trees every time we go down this road. I think it might be a reminder to keep growing, no matter what happens.
I believe this is toe-toe on the left and pampas on the right.
Although the water was far from calm, there were many who braved the waves to swim or surf.
Even with a cold snap last night, the dahlias are still hanging in there, but for how long??
