Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Of Tree Stumps, Mushrooms and Ferns

While my wife has been picking pine mushrooms in our nearby forests, I have been searching for objects that typically represent the autumn scene in our area. Old tree stumps and tree trunks have always fascinated me, as they so wondrously symbolize the end and the beginning of a new life cycle. Mushrooms are pushing through the forest floor to release their spores for the next growing season. Ferns are bending low under the weight of old age while retaining their graceful shapes of geometric patterns for us to admire. Of course, the brightly shining sunflower wheel must always be part of the visual presentation of the wonderful autumn season. Enjoy.

  1. Beautiful pictures, Peter! It looks like British Columbia is very calm during the Fall. Here in Northern California our week began with high, dry winds and power outages and fear of more wildfires. Pretty calm today, though. Maybe we will be more like British Columbia the rest of the week!

    • The best approach is to know the good edible varieties and for your safety leave the other mushrooms alone. We eat the pine mushrooms, the chanterelles and the lobster mushrooms. They grow in abundance here and are delicious.
