No Knitting News

I never really thought one way or another about mushrooms, except that I don't like to eat them raw. They smell like dirt & the texture is funky. I tolerate cooked ones....

I read that mushrooms are the "fruit of fungus". Now, that's something to ponder........."the fruit of fungus". Does that mean that mushrooms are fruit? Who knew that fungus had fruit???

There are hundreds of different species of mushrooms & I think we have 1/2 of them in our yard.

I guess we can attribute the abundance of them to the wetter than usual summer we've had.

Now, I will take you on a study of mushrooms, they are really pretty interesting.

Actually, I'm finally learning how to take pictures with my camera.

If you want me to bring my golf clubs over and practice a little swinging, I'll be glad to get rid of those mushrooms for you.
