We have been in Lexington, Massachusetts for about a month now. We are parked in a family members driveway, easy access to Jeff's side of the family and our daughter.
Most mornings Jeff and I go for a four mile walk in the neighborhoods of Lexington.
This particular day was still damp from the previous nights rain.
This is an amazing Chinese Dogwood..
I have always loved Chinese Dogwood..
It flowers later than American dogwood and its blooms reach out on arms of the tree.
Edible fruits….I have eaten the fruits in the past but have never made anything out of them.
It was in someones yard..
Chicken of the Woods
On our walk the following day..the mushroom wasn’t there..
They had mowed the lawn and heaved the mushroom into the nearby pond.
Next time..I will not hesitate.
Grab it before it goes…
