My weekend at Greenwood, following Thanksgiving was mostly raw and wet but there were several hours between rain squalls i spent exploring. Beneath a giant horse chestnut i found a a cache of gold-bronze leaves lying across
a wide carpet of pachysandra and moss which has revived from the end of summer drought back to a plump, moist carpet.
i gathered some holly berries selected some of the larger chestnut leaves and a large pachysandra pinwheel. The knees of my pants were good and soaked by the time i'd finished playing.
