September 4-10 In the Woods

 After a hot spell, the weather has cooled some.  The woods at Spring Creek still wear late summer, but some changes anticipate fall.  The poison ivy is turning orange.  Fewer flowers in bloom, although both pale and spotted touch-me nots are in full swing.  The occasional tree starting to dull in color.
