A Study in Mushrooms

I came across a patch of mushrooms.

I was surprised at their beauty.

Stark, perhaps.

This little patch quickly sprung up, but will soon be gone.

I used to paint.

This  morning as I knelt close to the ground taking these pictures, I thought about picking up a brush again.

Maybe a camera is easier.

Snow on the Popcorn

I looked out the window, and what did I see?

Snow is on my popcorn tree!

The good news is our drought is over.

I'm not sure there is any bad news, as long as the dams in the canyons continue to hold all the water.

In the meantime...

My living room floor is the temporary home for my geraniums.

I don't mind that they are underfoot.

Not one bit.

This tree has been in bloom for more than a week, but the rain and clouds have not been conducive to a nice picture.  However, tonight I looked out the window, and what did I see?
