Thank you for your sweet comments and thoughts~ What a blessing to have so many kindred spirits! We love to read your blogs and see all that we have in common in BlogLand. :)
It has been incredibly warm here these past two days; almost eighty degrees! We have been outside planting more greens and getting a spot ready to be tilled for bigger vegetables in a few days.
We discovered about ten more pounds of oyster mushrooms in the woods, which we made into more delicious oyster/potato/curry/chowder, yum! One reason we wanted to move to Missouri was the abundance of mushrooms that we had heard about. So far, we have not been disappointed! We are looking forward to finding our first morels in April, since we've never tried them before.
~We never eat mushrooms until we have positively identified them, including taking a spore print overnight~
We never play with snakes until we've positively identified them, but without the spore prints~ ;)
Can you guess what these little plants are?
We are learning the meaning of "brambles and briars" here in Missouri!
We feel very blessed to have a little wild spot in such an urban area.
Mr. Graham surprised us with a few magazines from the store, including Birds and Blooms, Victoria Magazine's Gardening Issue, and Mother Earth News, so you know we will be in reading heaven for a good while (And he brought home Perrier (happy sigh. . . :), good lad!).
May you have a wonderful day, dear friends. We shall be thinking of you all!
