    Autumn has come to Spy Garden! Do you dry your celosia? It holds its color pretty well. Love that lion’s mane mushroom, like a white waterfall. I like the photo of the deer watching you watching them. :-) You must be happy about the Cards – may they go all the way!

    “GO THE CARDINALS!” That celosia garden is quite magical. I can imagine fairies infesting it. Lovely fungi shots. I LOVE fungi. Found a gorgeous turkey fungus growing on an old stump in Sanctuary the other day and blogged about it. An excellent juxtaposition between beauty and the beast with the skull and gorgeous artwork from everyone. I like the heart in particular.
