On Sunday, Jim and I headed over to Berkeley Lake Park for an afternoon stroll. The weather was clear, cool and crisp; the autumn ideal.
We enjoyed seeing the still-rich colors of newly dormant plants. I was intrigued by the (seemingly) random patterns created by the downed cattail stalks.
And a bit of fluff ready to take flight on the next breeze.
The old cottonwood trees (Populus sargentii) look even more massive now that their branches are bare.
A few colorful leaves still linger. . .
