New England Wildflower Society's Garden in the Woods

Took a short walk this morning at Garden in the Woods.  It was nice and quiet, and the weather was cool but sunny.  I only had about an hour, so I walked Curtis Path from the Gift Shop to the meadow and back.   I was happy to see a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird in the Idea Garden.  The hummingbirds in our yard have already left for the season.

Eastern Painted Turtle

Yes, this turtle shell is peeling.  It is not diseased.  Peeling is a normal occurrence for water turtles that bask in the sun.  It helps them stay clean, and a clean shell is critical to absorb heat from the sun.

Don't you just love these tiny white mushrooms?  They are growing in a crack of the backrest of a bench along the path.  Granted, it is a wooden bench, but I still thought it was neat!
