Wood ear mushrooms
I was so tempted to cook these up; I read up on them and they are very nutritious; fiber, protein, help lower cholesterol yadda yadda the list goes on. But still kinda freaked out by the prospect of eating wild mushrooms. If I did though, I think these would be the first kind I would eat because it seems there are no poisonous lookalikes (that I know of anyway!).
This sort of mushroom; way scary; because SOOooo many varieties look like this.
This zinnea looks like candy!
Turtle; love the polka dots on his legs!
There are tons (like 15 at any given time of day) of black zebra swallowtails on the milkweed. But haven’t seen any monarchs yet this year.
This photo reminds me of a fabric print
Mimosa Tree; I just love those little hot pink puffs!
Eno hammocks are seriously the best things ever!
Hanging upside down
She does lots of tricks with the Eno! (sometimes in her underwear- ha!)
A few echinacea continue to bloom (and some are already spent)
Making a necklace for Nana’s birthday! She is really into beading lately.
Love staring up at the trees (from the Eno hammock!)
I can finally understand what all the excitement is about. I pretty much know zero about it, but Smoochie played (and is coaching his team now!) and I went to one of the practices and it was all very exciting. I can really understand wanting to slam into someone; it seems quite satisfying. HAhaha
The junior lancers practice and play at the highschool (which adds to the excitement!)
Very hot, so only pads for part of the practice today!
Baby sneaking off with a pad-thingy (I believe that’s the official term) haha
I’m sure this thingy also has a name
