Outdoor Fun, and Fix It


Look at these mushrooms!

I saw them while out on my walk.

Dozens of them.


And can you believe how big they are?
(that is my size 7 shoe beside this one,
and it is bigger than that!)
This one must have been a foot across.

Doe you have big mushrooms here you live??
Garden Tip:
Waste not, want not.
Broke corner off this cute jar, so...

I put it in the garden and made a planter out of it.

My Egret (or blue Heron) is back.
Been gone all winter.
There has been construction around his pond.
Hope he stays.
I missed him.

Thanks for coming by.

are the mushroom edible? I don't dare to harvest wild mushroom. My grandma's village almost all got drunk for 3 days when they ate wild mushroom. My grandma didnot eat them, and she is weary and tells us not to eat them.

way to keep it and enjoy it. I'm willing to make a fruit or floral bouqet too if I can cover the chip.
