A New Year’s Eve Wild Mushroom Tour

December 31, 2012

And why not? I have to go jump in the shower to get scrubbed and ready for kids and grandkids to join Buck and me for a New Year’s Eve “bring your own pizza” party. There will be all varieties, from artisanal to gluten-free and fully-loaded. We’ll have a blast, from ages 13 to 75.

After they leave, I’ll play around some more with fonts and colors, then say my first piece in the new year. Depending on how long they stay tonight, that piece may not get spoken until    mid-day tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I would not that ye have come to this page for nothing. So, here (ta da) is a semi-brief photographic tour of some of the coolest mushrooms in the woods. Buck and I noticed them about two weeks ago when we were out walking.  Something  was knocking many of them over like in a way that looked petulant. You’ll see.

Happy New Year — see you tomorrow and we’ll begin again!

    Beth, these are beautiful! And I see what you mean about being knocked over. You have quite an eye for natural beauty (being one yourself!).
    Happy New Year!!
