Mushrooms

No, we haven’t found any morels.  I think it is still too early.  Vern, Dan’s wise friend,  says morels won’t make an appearance until the leaves on Red Bud trees are the size of a mouse ear.  Our Red Buds are starting to burst with color.  I better inspect the leaves.

I did find this mushroom yesterday.

Checking  “The Practical Mushroom Encyclopedia” on my bookshelf, I believe it is an early stage Shaggy Parasol mushroom.  Good to eat and dry.  Still, I would never eat anything except morels because I am not a absolute identifier and mushrooms can be deadly.
