(at the workbench) -a study in the life of a mushroom

Yesterday the last day of February and a leap day besides was filled with rain and I couldn’t help but feeling that April showers had arrived very early and March flowers might appear soon.

New England is certainly not know for early springs, but this year, fooling the senses with the sun shining warmly, the ground starting to soften and a not so little hope in the implausible.  So ton this first day of March (though temperatures are still below freezing as I write this),  thoughts of spring, gardens and flowers are easy.

Beside for a bit of foraging, it would be easy to get lost in a comfortable armchair with a stack of field guides and books reading up on these pretties.

I’ve been thinking about just what toadstools might crop up in the soil of  dreaming imagination; these are a few of the variety in the works I saw in my mind:
