We mowed and trimmed our yard this morning - and I found these charming little mushrooms. You can see how small they are by the size of the pine needles beside them.

G. is taking a photo class, and this week's lesson is macro photography so he dropped the yard blower and ran for the camera before the light changed.

How amazing, you can even see the grains of sand on them.

I love the red with the yellow gills! I've got shrooms sprouting all over the place with all this rain .. not as pretty as those though.

Did I tell you all my story about the mushrooms in my yard?
They start out day glow yellow then turn to teal blue and look like dayglow blue. Awesome.things and then they go away.
Wonder what makes them change to the beautiful colors.

Wouldn't a time lapse video of them be cool.

Indeed! Are you still desperate for rain Ardesia? It looks like you've gotten some in the last few week.

Lavina, we probably aren't getting as much as you since you're closer to the coast, but we have hardly had to water at all this summer. Even last night, with only 20% forecast, we got a tenth of an inch.

Also, most days in the mid to high 80's or barely 90. Very few even close to 100.

Nice!

Aggghhhhh, it has been pouring all around us but we seem to be in a little pocket that the rain avoids. We are still in a major drought in my specific area. Recent guests were blown away that we could watch It rain across the river while it was sunny and dry here.

We did get a good storm Saturday afternoon while we were watching the PGA tournament at Kiawah where it was sunny without a hint of rain. We, as the crow flies, are very close to Kiawah. Go figure. The rain seems to come as far east as downtown Beaufort, then it splits and goes around us.

My son, in Jacksonville, FL, has had more than 3' of rain this summer.

That really is weird .. I've been lucky with a good rain at least once a week here ... my hedychium's have never been so big or bloomed so early.
