Weekday Walk

This week we had a mini adventure with my son, mapping out the way to his Greenhouse Gardening class. My artists eye found lovely treasures along the way. 

White mushrooms/toadstools in the grass behind the bus stop shelter where we changed buses. I think the faeries were hiding.

Other than the watermark, this is SOOC 
Walking home through the neighborhoods as we walked back from the greenhouse, we saw a gorgeous Pacific Dogwood, a native tree of our area. Isn't it beautiful?

And as we walked the final stretch toward home, we noticed some graffiti on a fence. I kind of reminded me of pacman... with an attitude. :)

I'm sharing today with Cheryl at mysticmissive for Writing on the WallStraight Out of the Camera  and Macro Monday

Helen, these are lovely photographs. Sounds like quite an adventure. good thing you had your camera. The dogwood in Louisiana have only 4 petals. I like the toadstools, including their hidden faeries. And I like the Pacman graffiti. Thanks for playing along.

The dogwood flower is beautiful. I've read about these trees but not seen one.

The perspective in the dogwood photo makes the bloom look HUGE. I've seen them around, coming into bloom. Very lovely.
