I know I sound like a broken record, but it's just rain, rain, rain. Too many inches to even keep track of anymore. We had tremendous thunderstorms last night between the hours of 10 and 2. Not much sleep going on. However, storms are cool to listen to here because we live in a valley between mountains. The thunder echoes off the peaks and rumbles forever. My garden is growing well in spite of, or maybe because of, the rain. The bees are working the tulip poplar between storms. I found these mushrooms this morning. The big orange ones have been growing for a couple of days. The little brown ones literally sprang up overnight. We don't eat wild mushrooms because I don't know which are safe. I'll stick to the shitake I'm growing.
There is a slug on one of the mushrooms in the picture above and a really pretty black and orange bug in the picture below.
