This is Morel Mushroom Season and I really would love to find some yummy morsels. Those that know me…know I love picking shrooms and have a nice supply of dried Chanterelles and Porcinis, that I picked.
Morels are being found all around the United States now…check out the highlighted links below to see if they are popping up in your area.
I am here in the Sand hills of NC. I don't know if Morels grow here in the sand. I have been looking at the Morel Mushroom maps…kind of like looking at birdie migration maps…It shows you where they are popping up. I noticed that they were seen and picked about 30 miles north of here in Sanford in a town park and also an hour north in Raleigh….so they are around!
I thought I would check some parks around the area and not drive to Sanford. The issue here is the soil is mostly sand. Sanford and north are clay soils.
I didn't find any mushrooms….but I did find a nice park in the town of Southern Pines and had a nice walk.
Beautiful gardens….spring has sprung in North Carolina.
I took this picture of the bench for Adele…she likes cement furniture, so do you think this will work Adele?
I have been trying to take photos of butterflies…It is hard with a point and shoot camera…..I chase the poor little things all over the place. I got lucky here.
Yesterday, It was cold outside and I still had a cold..so I stayed inside and set up the scope and did some digiscoping…not the most clear..but i am working on it.
I find the little birds very difficult to capture.
I think tomorrow I will go north to Sanford and look for mushrooms, and bring my Binoculars to look for migrating birdies.
The big Question is …Should I look up or should I look down??
