Although not one for ‘bucket lists’ per se, there a few mushrooms / fungi / plants that Nicole would like to see (growing wild). A friend in another state recently spotted one of those plants and prompted Nicole to take yet another walk in the woods to see what was new in her area. Sometimes it’s all about timing. Look what’s begun to break through.
Thanks to a visitor who spent his spare time plucking all of this from our beach, we’re pretty sure we now know that this is Knapweed. He grew up on a farm and told us that the cows wouldn’t eat it and spread so readily that it cut into their food source. Hence, he still habitually picks it even when he isn’t on the farm.
What we do know is that the berries just keep coming.
And then there are the berries we aren’t yet sure of.
Well, we’d better wrap this up. Our friends G & D are coming to visit for a few days and they are bringing their pontoon boat. So, besides getting to hang out with some good people, it looks like we’ll also get a different view of this beautiful lake we’ve been living on for the last three months.
Until we meet again…
