Today at work one of the girls was talking about mushroom hunting. It's a big thing around these parts! If a good spot is found, it's guarded with a vengance..so I said she and anyone else who wanted too, could come and hunt in our Creepy Woods..With that in mind, I thought I would take a quick hike up between raindrops tonight to see how much vegetation had sprung up. I was curious to see if we did indeed have any mushrooms. With all the rain and mild temps these past few days, it should be a good shroom season. As you can see, the may apples and other greenery have really started to pop up. It won't be long until it will be a true forest again. I don't venture much up here in the Summer. It's too buggy and unless I'm willing to weed wack every week, too overgrown! Pretty much it's a 3 season hike. I may have to snap a pic later on to show how lush it gets.
Our creek that runs from the Creepy Woods on down to our side yard is usually a trickle or very dry..to see it flowing like this is a testament to how much rain we've been getting. It looks pretty, sounds lovely, but frankly, I'm ready for some sun or I'll be turning into a shroom myself!
This was the closest thing to a fungus I found..don't worry, I know this isn't the eating kind..besides I never would eat a mushroom that is picked from the woods. If I want one, I'll go where God intended me to go get one..the grocery store.
I may not have found any edible shrooms...but we have a wonderful crop of golf balls!
