Wednesday was a beautiful day. I hadn't been for a walk in ages, so I decided to go over to the Gosnell Big Woods and Big Meadows. Much to my surprise, I found that they had cut a new trail, since the last time I was there. This trail is simply called "The Meadow Trail." It travels through new woods and a very small meadow. It's a pretty walk at this time of year, and I am looking forward to Spring, to see what kind of flowers show up.
The new trail lead right back to the Big Woods, and the Big Meadow. So, I decided to walk the Big Meadow. Fall colors were everywhere, even in the poison ivy along the side of the trail.
There is still some Phlox in bloom.
But, the overwhelming sense I got from the meadow was a feeling of settling down, and settling in for the long Winter that lies ahead. I'll leave you with some pictures of the meadow in Fall.
