September is a transitional month in Massachusetts, with nights getting colder and colors appearing in the trees.  The skies can be vivid and crisp or, as at present, shrouded in muting gray tones:

Gould's field

But the fields are verdant, and the roadsides peppered with treasures:

Omphalotus illudens

Omphalotus illudens, adorning the base of a mighty oak in Shelburne, but at a price: it inflicts its host with a delignifying butt rot.


Along The Road. June 12, 2008

Up in Winsor, a high, wind-swept field…

…With Irises…

…and Buttercups:

And in the valley below, a shaded stream:

with deep, ledgy pools dappled with sunlight:

Atop the next hill, water lilies sprout in a pond in Plainfield,

And lastly, a cascade on the Deerfield near home:

A day with good light is a thing of wonder.
