sandy neck shrooms : 53 project week 39

Walking in the dunes on Sandy Neck
after the nor'easter
and found these mushrooms & fungi
emerging from the rainsoaked sand
braving the cold winds.


This last one is called an Earthstar, 
or Astraeus hygrometricus
and, like us, has a heart at its center.

midweek miscellany

Just some miscellaneous images
and some fences
taken on a lunchtime walk
down Rendezvous Lane.
Isn't that the best street name?
So full of possibilities.

This is one of my favorite village dogs.  Her name is Lucy, too.

Hearts.  They're all around.

Happy Halloween...

In the rose garden birdbath at St. Mary's.

Remnants of architectural details on the carriage house at the Daniel Davis House.

Some departed visitors -- forcefully relocated, I think.


Last of the October roses.

BI bliss : 53 project week 37 (part 3)

Sunday on Block Island.
Embracing every ray of light,
every step,
every last second of the day
before heading for home.

Until next time...

You can see Part 1 of the Block Island series here.
