A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. The standard for the name “mushroom” is the cultivated white button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus; hence the word “mushroom” is most often applied to those fungi that have a stem, a cap and gills or pores on the underside of the cap.
Today we headed into the forest to search for mushrooms. Not to gather and eat them, but to capture them on film. To our surprise, there were only a few. But I share what I have 😉
For this weekend’s challenge, I didn’t have to think long.
From spring till fall, my favorite spot is hidden in the back of my garden, surrounded by bushes. And though I don’t have a porch, it still swings.
This swing is the perfect place to sit and contemplate, to read, drink tea and wine. To talk and laugh deep into the night. And on sunny moments, my neighbors in the butterfly bush flutter and fly, or just watch and listen.
What is your favorite spot? I hope you can spend some time there this weekend 🙂

Well, this little chap is bravely walking forward on his spindly legs. Forever going nowhere. Alone in an empty, cloudy land, holding his tiny torn umbrella in a futile attempt to find shelter from wind and rain. Solitary.
