up north again

Once again out of town for a few days. And guess what I found? Yep. You guys are so freaking smart it blows me away. Mushrooms. Amazing how they just grow when you least expect it. Or should I chalk that up to nature? Always letting things grow in the world. Eh, who would have thunk? Nature, maybe?

Well, I came across what looks like a puffball! Yay! But, upon closer examination was a lookalike. Puffballs have no stems and when I turned this one over before slicing down the middle, yep, you are correct, a stem. And gills. So eating this one would be the demise of Carl Jasper. And I have plenty of other ways to expire before succumbing to a lookalike. Geesh.

Then I found this group of shrooms, all huddled together. Haven’t identified them as of yet, but they sure are cuties! I could just snuggle up to them. Or not. Still deciding.

And of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a few photos of this beautiful property I was staying at.

The atmosphere of the place is intoxicating. When I finally relax and catch my breath there will be more posts coming up! Rules you know.




it’s picture time…yay!

On a hike the other day, there was an interesting bush that had these strawberry like fruits dangling. Of course I had to know what it was called.

Arbutus Unedo” (< – click for more info)

Unedo meaning “I ate one time”. apparently it’s not that tasty and unlike strawberries where you can eat a pound in 5 minutes, these would take a day or so. They are a very hardy bush and I’m thinking of planting some here. Other things to do first though…
