I love wandering around our yard with my camera in hand as beauty comes when you are not expecting it and I want to be ready. A fallen leaf in the birdbath. A cat lounging in the sun. The glimmer of yellow tree leaves against a stormy sky. Lately, the morning walks have discovered mushrooms. An unusual number of them are popping up all over the place. I’m sure there is a climate-related reason for them, but I have yet to research it. For now, I am snapping pictures of the amazing variety that pop their heads up through the earth overnight. Here are a few varieties I’ve been discovering.
