We have been so wet that the mushrooms/toadstools are everywhere.
These pictures are just from my walk.
I have no idea what is poison and what is not.
So I will leave that to the experts.
My neighbor called and wanted to know if I wanted to pick some raspberries. That would be yes I would!
The big draw back was it was on a steep hill but we managed to get, I think about 5 1/2 to 6 quarts. The rain has molded so many right on the stems so sad but nothing you could do about it.
She said she had all she wanted so we could pick until our hearts content. I swear I ate a pint while I was picking they were so sweet and soft. I put them on a cookie sheet to freeze individually so they are easier to measure when we want them.( I will transfer them to qt bags after they freeze)
while my tomatoes are still green the flowers look ok.
are tough they keep going in all weather.
And yes my sticks, formally a beautiful hosta. (Deer grrr) But as you can see it is getting ready to bloom anyway! Love that!
I taught 4 new hookers last weekend and everyone of then thinks they will continue. I do know that at least 2 of them will for sure. It was fun but the light was horrid.
I have been going through cookbooks to decide if I really need 2 cupboards full of them.
And I did get to bake my famous almond tea cake. I have never had anyone not like it. It is my BFF's favorite.
Last Friday I was walking to the end of our road (dead end) and all of a sudden I think about 5 crows swooped and and were yelling with all their voice.
Then I see this hawk come out of the trees after one of the crows. Well the others were not having it and they harassed him until he gave up. I then see him in the tree all the crows are in the trees all around him just making all the noise they could to warn the other birds he was there. He finally gave up and few away. They became so quiet. Those crows are something and so interesting to watch and hear.
I am reading another Louise Penny and really enjoying it.
Today for once it didn't rain but it was so hazy from the forest fires out west. It makes my heart ache to think about it. I will try not to complain about the rain I know they need it so badly.
Have a wonderful week everyone.
