Spring Treats

One of the best tasting mushrooms in the world, a Morel. The adventure finding them makes them even taste better.

A family trait I didn't know about, squinty eyes.

  1. You get your morels so much earlier than we do here! Enjoy! I like the family photos!

  3. That's one beautiful Morel! Hope you found enough to cook up a good batch of them. It's a marvel to me how eagles build such amazing nests, one stick at a time. I'm watching the Decorah eagles again this year. I've gotten awfully attached to that pair. Is the kitty yours, or was it just visiting?

  4. I have never eaten a morel. But I know none of them are poisonous. I may give one a go if I find it.
    Squinty eyes look good.
    Those wolves certainly did a good job posing.;=).

  5. I'm afraid to pick my own mushrooms. I don't know enough to know whether they are poisonous or not.

  6. Hi Steve, Nice photo of the mushroom. Great capture of the eagle and eaglets. Nice to see your pretty daughter and her little ones, and of course I love all cats! That is one fat squirrel, too! Our forsythia here in GA is through blooming. I look forward to the wonderful scent of magnolia blossoms. Always a joy to visit and view your lovely pics. Have a nice weekend.

  8. I have never once found a morel mushroom in the woods- I have searched many times. Your grands are sweet, and we have the squinty eyes here too!

  10. Another great set of photos. Your family is adorable. Amazing shot of the eagle. But honestly, the rusty windmill is my favorite! Thank you for sharing.

  11. I like the pictures of the statues. On one of the old nature trails I visited a few times there was a statue of a huge vicious dog placed randomly on one of the trails. It could fool anybody seeing it for the first time.
