Had a spot of sun today and a rambling walk with Rachel– lots of mushrooms around this year. Sure wish I knew where to find the edible ones. These can earn you some money! For just as the mushrooms are sprouting up in the fall little store fronts appear to purchase yours, like “Marg’s” on the corner. Problem is the haunts of the coveted ‘pine’ mushroom are a well kept secret among persons in the ‘know’. Even friends and neighbors are loathe to part with their knowledge of these things. So, I just keep to my trails and take pictures of the odd mushroom and leave them be.
This picture is a ‘cheat’. I repositioned this little threesome for a clearer photo. Mushrooms don’t typically grow in bright beds of moss…
Ooo. Somebody made a boo-boo here. These beauties are toxic!
This strange bit of growth looks like it ought to be under the sea in a coral reef or something…
Ahh the palette of a True Artist…
One man’s work (get raking!) another’s splendor… For now I get to take the pictures but one of these years I want to have one of these beautiful little maples of my own…

Nope. Not edible. Just picturesque.
I’ve been watching this little oak tree from year to year struggling to gain momentum. He seems to be coming into his own this year and what a beautiful wrap he’s put on for the fall. I found the little ring of mushrooms at his feet curious. Do you suppose he was fertilized with mushroom manure?
“…then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth… in righteousness.” (Ps.96:12,13)
How might a tree sing for joy? Can you hear this one?
