It’s been a dry summer here in the Pacific Northwest. But over the weekend, the skies opened up and dropped torrents on our little cabin and the woods around us.
The wet forest has such a distinctive, pleasing smell. Clearly, Walnut loves his woods.
Sometimes the flash of white you see – tucked under a nest of branches or ferns or moss – is just the underside of a fallen leaf. Sometimes the flash of white is a whole little village of chanterelles, sprouted up overnight.
Look a little higher, and you’ll see it’s time for a huckleberry harvest, too. Francis is focused on the dogs’ eye-level view.
Some of the prizes we took home, to share with a few friends.
