Yesterday was a lovely, warm, sunny day.
The kids, the dog, and I had a wonderful time playing in the woods.
The kids and the dog played in the creek.
Anything that gets Copper in the water is a fun game for him.
He even likes to retrieve rocks. Silly dog.
I found mushrooms to photograph.
I strongly suspect these are Deadly Galerina
(Galerina marginata, previously known as "Galerina autumnalis").
According to the Wiki article, Galerina means helmet-like.
I think they are pretty little things, even if they are quite poisonous.
Nothing makes me smile in the winter quite like the
greens of mosses and lichens.
I even found some oyster mushrooms which didn't photograph well, but tasted pretty darn good.
Yesterday was a lovely finish to a good year.
Today, on the other hand is cold, windy, and gray.
It's not my favorite kind of day.
But we are a day closer to spring!
