Ailsa of Where’s my backpack? was so kind to invite me to participate in her Weekly Travel Theme. It is foliage she wants us to show. And I found plenty of that in a nearby forest. Woods. Eh…
Could someone please explain the difference between forest and woods to me? When do I use forest and when woods? Thank you.
The leaves stay the same though 😉

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 🙂

I can not imagine life without my animal friends.
Carol King. I was very fortunate to see her perform in Amsterdam, somewhere in the eighties. Not my eighties though 😛
Today I want to dedicate this song to my friends – especially to Paula and Jules. And to anyone who needs a friend tonight…
Will you sing with me?
thank you, duckling dear
you brought back my smile

Two orange feet, planted firmly on the ground, helped me to touch down again. Stay your sweet droll self, little one 🙂
