I still have to watch my recording of the Royal Wedding. Can’t wait! While getting ready for work this morning, I was watching sporadically the royal festivities on the kitchen telly :) Just as the Prince & his Princess stepped out on the balcony for their first kiss, I spied our first hummingbird of the season at our feeder. I mean really… how cool is that?
After a glorious day of sunshine (they’ve been rare lately), I came home to take a walk in the woods and pastures with the dogs. Just on a whim, I thought I’d check to see if I could find any morel mushrooms. I’m a lousy mushroom hunter. I’ve always believed that I couldn’t see one -- even if a squirrel in the woods would throw one at me. I had my dear late mother-in-law on my mind while hunting, you see… she was a legendary mushroom hunter. Just as the thought of her entered my mind, I saw one! And another, and another…
And another. Until I had about a gallon (well, that may or may not be a slight exaggeration… I’m excited, I tell ya!). I had to carry them rolled up in the front of my sweatshirt. It’s bad luck to take a bag with you on a mushroom hunt, ya know ;)
Here they are in all their glory, getting washed up in the sink.
I can’t wait for this feast. I’ve waited many many frustrating years to become a real mushroom hunter.
So… did you watch the Royal festivities today? If so, what was your favorite part? I’ll let you know mine as soon as I watch it. I do confess to shedding some tears during The Kiss (don’t tell!).
Have a fabulous weekend, my friends!
