Now that our day of rest is over for another week, it was time to get some chores done, such as mowing the lawn (we almost needed a baler, even though our son had tried valiantly to keep up during our absence). The forecast had rain starting this afternoon and continuing all day tomorrow. So, we mowed - and got it done - before the rain started.
But start it did, on cue this afternoon, and I hadn't had an opportunity yet to make some photos for my 365 project. After dinner I decided to go for a little drive to a nearby spot where I thought I might have a little protection under the trees. Everything looked pretty drab in the fading light and light drizzle. But I spotted something that seemed to thrive on the cooler temps and wet, gloomy weather, and it was pushing its way upwards through fall's detritus.
