shaggy mane, mackerel sky, fragrant cosmos

(1) shaggy mane

a mushroom I found in the backyard, and there are two more poking up that will be ready to pick tomorrow. I cooked up the shaggy mane and had it with cauliflower. so, actually, there are three mushrooms I will pick and eat, not two: to chicken of the woods and puffballs, add shaggy mane (... and inky cap... but what I found was shaggy mane).

(2) mackerel sky

that's what wakanomori calls it when the sky looks the way it looked this evening. Lots of little bumps and speckles of clouds. Very pleasant. This morning the sky had cirrus clouds in it and vapor trails from clouds. It was like looking at waves and also at the wake of a motorboat, only the wake didn't fade.

(3) fragrant cosmos

I never noticed until this year how nice the cosmos smells. I love to walk past them. Sometimes I just stick my face right into them to enjoy the way they smell. I feel like I'm completely wrapped up in the smell; it's very comforting.

The fall colors aren't going to be so good this year... many of the maple trees are just dropping their leaves, all brown, prematurely--it's because of some fungus, I think is what I heard. But some will hopefully turn...I think I've seen some brightening up.

The fall colors here aren't like they have been in the past in the city-even the mountains around the city aren't as colorful yet...but the sunsets and some of the sunrises have been nice looking (although the picture I took and posted tonight looks like the sky was angry (?))
