  1. I love this so much, Twinsie <3 What a gorgeous specimen! Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks :). They are common this time of year, but I love them! Posted one year 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 one year 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 one year 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 one year ago
        1. Hope you find some beauties! Posted one year ago
