My Woods Treasures

Last week I had a full 3 days as a bachelorette so between tending to the shop, internet and animals I was able to play 'country girl' again. The weather was wonderful, 60's-70 temperature, a little windy Tuesday but that kept some of the no-see-ums (a pesky gnat that really bites) away part of the time.

Two of the cats and Dance, the Border Collie, and I wandered the woods behind our barns on a couple of occasions. We were rewarded with a find of morel mushrooms, only 1/2 pound but that is enough for a good taste when sauteed then mixed in scrambled eggs. That is a country delicacy for me.

The end of the week cooled to 40's - 50's which isn't good mushroom growing around here but the forecast promises rain in a couple more days with a warm up so maybe I can find some more - before the deer or sheep find them.

I love mushrooms but I don't think I've ever tried these.

Hope that you find more.

I love mushrooms also, but with my luck I would grab toad stools!! I didn't realize that there were no-see-ums in Michigan. I thought those pesky biting things were confined to the southern states. Must have lucked out during our visits to Bob's sister as we never encountered any. Our weather here in NM has cooled down some also with a crisp wind blowing. Back to painting today I think......
