Thrifted Boots on a Walk in the Park

Last week E and I had some time on our own in town while W was at Lego Club.  We wandered along the creek looking for things to take photos of.  We were practicing "seeing". ;-)

E got such a kick out of spotting these mushrooms, we would see them way up on the top of cut off (or broken off) Cottonwoods - at least 30 feet up, usually higher.

These ones we found just barely out of the ground, it's actually hard-packed crush. 

Imagine something so delicate growing out of hard-packed crush. Mushrooms are amazing.

Then we "saw" our shadows.  And we had to play our shadow game so we went from a  lovely hand holding walk along the creek.

To a shadow karate show down.


And, J, these are the thrifted boots I was so excited about.  Love them!

i can see why you love them! they are great with skirts. you just wouldn't want to have to take them on and off too many times in the day!

Ooh, pretty pictures! We love mushrooms, too. They're so fascinating. Do you know if the white ones are edible? We're still only sure of about 3 kinds that grow here that are good to eat.

The boots are so classy~you're lucky to have skinny feet!

Hi Jacqueline -No, I wouldn't want to have to take them off too often - they actually do lace up, not zipper. Part of their charm for sure but a bit of extra patience is needed. ;-)

Marqueta - we're not sure yet which kinds they are. E has to do some research to find out. He is quite curious and is hoping to find out the big bunch growing in the tree are an edible kind as they would need very little cleaning before eating. ;-)
