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:

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

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

Ouch!
