Morning Walk: Stones, Grass and Fence

It is a lovely fall morning: bright with a touch of frost. I had a walk with my daughter to her kindergarten. On the way back I took few pictures: dry grass in the wind and lava stones. I loved to share few pictures from around new school in our neighborhood. This is a fence made out of grass!
