Spots and Dots

a week ago
I found this mushroom rising through the earth
a splash of dirty color:

I visited it and photographed it every day
It took 7 days from beginning to end

it was the only mushroom around

it was a fun and interesting thing to do

out in the back meadow 
the grasses are now taller than I
they are speckled with ladybugs

this is the first summer that I have seen so many of these 
little gem-like bugs

this seasons fawns are quite dapper in their spots

sharing a scattering of spots and dots 
from my forest
