for Six Word Saturday

Every so often, we got a day where it wasn’t actively raining and we seized the moment to enjoy it to the fullest. While my s-i-l took one of the dogs for a long run, I (who am a fast-twitch muscle/sprinter/100-200m “distance” runner), took a nice walk to find a memorial in the forest.

When it’s been raining, you start seeing fungus and although there were many that had dried out due to the long drought, some survived, while others were beginning to thrive.

Bundle a number of these branches together and you have a broom of the sort used before you could just go buy one and still used by some.

A few days ago on my walk, I spotted this tree trying to be invisible and doing rather well.  I zoomed in a bit closer and found that one fungus amongus wasn’t quite like the others. But each had a delicate bit of frost, at least until the sun crept up higher.

Finally, fundamentally fabulous, fantastic French forest fungus.  Fun!  🙂

Yes, alliteration has struck again.  If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you know that where I go in France, I’m deep in the Vosges forest.  This is where we walk the dogs each day.

Although we love to hunt for (edible) mushrooms, much of what we find is, although fun to see, not edible and might even be poisonous.  Despite not being edible, fungi can be eye-catching, as I think you can tell from these photos.

Pink isn’t a color I wear or have around much. With my coloring, I need darker, rich colors or I look washed out.  But spring usually brings a plethora of pinks and when they’re not near my face, I like them.  Since Cee asked for pink this week, I browsed through a few of my (unorganized except by date) files and found these two that I’d like to share.  The first is a beautiful fungus I came across in the wood of northeastern France last year.  The second is a photographic wallowing in the softness of rose petals. Except for framing and watermark, both are unedited.
