Mushroom foray

Last weekend we joined a group of fabulous people on a mushroom foray. 
For some of those people, difficult fungi names are like nursery rhymes! We had so much fun in the cool, deep woods. We looked for mushrooms for a couple hours and had a potluck afterwards. I met the master mushroom dyer Dorothy Beebee. She told me that 'the beginners really "see" the mushrooms. You can spot her silk and wool dyed with mushrooms on the display table.

My harvest of the day - black trumpets!!!
