Fall At Discovery Nature Sanctuary

Yes, these pictures were taken some time ago, but they show just some of the beauty of fall at the Nature Sanctuary.


It was a quiet morning when I was there. It seemed no one else was out and about and I enjoyed the peacefulness of the morning.

I found one Milkweed still in bloom.


A small patch of these bright flowers. I think they may be a form of the Mexican Hat flower.


Obviously the birds had not found these ripe cherries, but I'm sure they discovered them in time.


The creek that runs through this area was like a sheet of glass and so pretty.


As I walked along one of the paths, I saw in the distance a patch of white. Upon closer inspection, I realized it was a patch of these pretty flowers. They look so delicate.


Something To Think About:

No one is in charge of your happiness, except you.

Ya, they call them Mexican hats here in Texas (I drew one and it was a $200 winner at our botanical gardens). But, I've also heard it called prairie coneflower.

I know you don't like Halloween, but happy Halloween & enjoy a quiet evening.

I really like your ending quote. It's so true.
Wonderful photos of your early morning walk in God's Beauty.
The white flowers look like they are in the Morning Glory family.
