A burst of sunlight

A burst of sunlight

We seem to have had unrelenting grays of late, much of it accompanied by mizzle or rain or very heavy downpours. Although we’re still in November a sure sign that the water table is already very high (despite a very dry autumn) is the state of the roads in these parts with many small or large floods, and the fact that our basement has started to seep water. Last year no water seeped in at all, although in 2012 we ended up with several inches of standing water as the water table rose and rose and rose.

But this morning, after the first frost, a little wonderment not just at the light but at the frozen-ness of everything. N found these wonderful fungi on the front lawn and called me out. I’m not sorry. The grass is still very long because it’s been so wet that it hasn’t had it’s last cut of the year yet. The thick frost coating cracked and broke as we walked across it, discovering these in various states of frozen-ness and dilapidation on this feel-alive bright sunny morning.
