Spring time in the Thousand Acre Woods...

Last Saturday was the first day of my mom's big event.  I went to lend a hand and also snap a little photography with Cami.  My mother is a die hard equestrian enthusiast while I tend to prefer keeping my feet on the ground.  As I was circling, snapping away, something beautiful stole my attention...

It's mushroom season!  Spring is officially here.  I have always been fascinated by fungus and it's unique beauty.  (Big part of the reason I enjoy The Dainty Squid so much)  Although I do not know a great deal about them I always thought it would be awesome to have a mushroom, moss, fern, and fungi garden with a pond in the middle.  Still something I'd love to have.  Unfortunately, mushroom season is very short lived here so I jumped at the chance to share the vase variety we have here in the foothills.

About half way through my adventure I discovered these old spectacles... 

wouldn't you love to know the story behind them?  I wish I did...

I was so happy to witness mushroom season in full swing!  It is always so short and such a treat!
