Ghost Trees

My friend Laurie and I visited the Hoyt Arboretum earlier in September. There's a kind of killer fungus that's hitting some of the conifers. The park employees are cutting down the trees that are hard hit, so it won't spread, but these two have passed on.

The path through the redwoods smells really woodsy and it's very shady in there. We couldn't even follow our simple map to make a loop. But we made our way around OK. Someone put a tiny doll's tea set high up in the crook of a tree. I tried to get a photo but it was near the end of the day and too dark.

If you look in the upper left corner, you might make out a ghostly little table, set for tea.

It's Fall foliage time at the Hoyt Arboretum.
