More mushrooms for you this week, though yesterday I was out hiking through the woods when it hit me. Mushrooms aren’t so easy to spot under this thick layer of fallen leaves. As the end fall nears (or has it already passed?), I don’t think there will be much more mushroom searches for me. I may have missed my chance to find the elusive fly agaric. *sigh*
Next year, mushroom, next year I’ll get you.

No feeling so creative tonight, after over an hour and a half of this on the way home. Abra + Traffic = CRANKY!!

This book has been my companion for the last few days, trying to locate the elusive red-capped mushrooms.

Aaaand this week’s Macro Monday!
This week I wanted to focus on finding interesting mushrooms (I’m still on the hunt for the elusive Amanita Muscaria) for a project I’m working on. There are mushrooms growing EVERYWHERE around here, and this project has really opened my eyes to the variety of fungus out there!

Today Isaac and I drove over to Spokane for an impromptu visit. As it happens, we got to see Emi’s recital!
Sunday, November 10th
We didn’t leave Spokane until after the sun went down, so by the time we got home I had little interest in hunting down mushrooms (though I’m sure there are interesting nocturnal varieties I have yet to learn about)
Monday, November 11th
Back to the mushroom hunt today! Toby and I went out to all the places I could remember seeing mushrooms before.
And the search continues…

I’m thinking of putting together a calendar for next year of all mushrooms.

And on we go. (I wish I was on a train going somewhere exciting!)

Yesterday was so windy, large areas around the Puget Sound were out of power for hours (the library was down for 2.5 hours)

Trying something new tonight scares the dog. He had no idea what to make of my weird endeavors.

FINALLY, my Romanesco Broccoli is starting to grow actual crowns. Since I transplanted them into my community garden plot (from a pot behind our apartment) they’ve been growing like crazy, taking over the whole middle section of the garden. And finally I’m starting to see these! So very cool to have grown such an interesting plant from seed.
More photos as this one and others get bigger (and to pickable size).

Moments before my dog went bat-shit crazy at a horse trotting by, I was down in the dirt trying to take photos of this patch of mushrooms along the road. Seriously dude, what did that horse ever do to you??

And today’s Macro Monday:
Tuesday, October 15th
Went driving in the country today, and stopped here along the road to capture some of the turning fall foliage.
Wednesday, October 16th
Isaac made it his mission to catch a leaf before we left the park. Eventually, he was able to catch three.

A few spiderwebs found outside our place
Saturday, October 19th
I found several kinds of mushrooms growing near where we sometimes take Toby (now, I know what you’re thinking, but no dogs are allowed in the area I found the mushrooms, so no connection to their prolific growth there)

This Crusty Bread recipe is one of the easiest I’ve come across, with tasty results!
