  1. I love this so much, Twinsie <3 What a gorgeous specimen! Posted 2 years ago
    1. Thanks :). They are common this time of year, but I love them! Posted 2 years ago
  2. Nice one! Is it already fall-like cold in your place? Here still mildly warm in the 20 C and up. But I wonder if is mushroom season already..we have to venture to the nearby woods and check :-) Posted 2 years ago
    1. Most days still get up to 18-22C, but we have had some chillier days and a couple frosts already. Problem is that it is super dry and I've seen less than half the mushrooms that I would normally see this time of year. Worst mushroom season in a long time. I'm living vicariously on everyone else's mushroom spottings this autumn! Posted 2 years ago
      1. here also it has been warm until late in the season but this week we have lower temperatures coming..it keeps bouncing. I will soon check the woods anyway :-) Posted 2 years ago
        1. Hope you find some beauties! Posted 2 years ago
          1. I hope, thanks! Posted 2 years ago
