the hunt was a bust

Well, we finally made time to search for morel mushrooms. You look for a place that has a burn in the near past, recent rain, and a nice sunny day.


Washington countryside (impacted by fire and probably some logging)

Apparently, it was a little too cold.  We found a couple of small morels here and there, but for the most part, it was a bust. My daughter-in-law did find some coral mushrooms (which are very yummy fried up in butter).

We also stopped by an amazing mountain spring that had been turned into a water spot. Here’s my grandson in little boy heaven. Puddles everywhere.

And here is more of the May color challenge. Love my tangle*a*day calendar.

materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, and colored pencils
