    Fall colors...
    by Soggy
    I knew I should have taken my camera with me last weekend when the fall colours were at their peak, but I didn't so I'll have to settle for this. Still lots of colour, but not quite as vivid as they were a week ago....

    Son's stick
    by 4ND3R5
    My son had an amethyst, so we decided to make him a staff with it and a maple branch. He is pretty happy with it. That's chocolate ice cream in his face btw. Haha....
