The first lovely day in weeks, time for a little garden work. Hubby on the lawn more, hoping the 19 year old mower will make it one more year. Lots of "clean up" to attend to after the lawn mowing.
Bringing out the blower to finish the chore, John mentioned seeing some funny looking mushrooms growing next to the stumps left from tree removal last fall; "they look like little sponges"!
As I ran over to check out our growing sponges, my head kept saying, we aren't so lucky...my heart was saying, please let it be the "gems"....well, guess what we're having for dinner tonight!?! Yup, fresh morels, sauteed in butter, a big juicy steak and a great bottle of wine. Could spring dinner be any better? We do have a large lot, with plenty of trees...guess we may have to check out other areas of our lot. We may have found our next business!
