Read your d-mail,
Will be sending more.
Dave, calling Dave!
Your welcome Dave ^_^
Going to the forty today.....BF is taking a gun along just in case that bear is around.
Maybe I should ask him if I can hold the gun...............LOTFL
I hope the gun is for scaring the bear away. If you shoot a bear, the bear will get very angry!
I bet if Kassy sees the bear first it will be a toss up as to who is angriest....grin. We have a new thread Dave, I don't think you will have any trouble finding it....Grin
Oh, Good morning, Dave.
Don't eat those Mushrooms!
The first two look like Death Angels, Amanita.
#1 might be Amanita mormorata, the Death Cap. One bite can kill a full grown adult.
# 2 & 5 is Amanita muscaria the Fly Agaric Mushroom. It is poisonous as well, and their toxicity can vary. A mild intoxication results in delirium & hallucinations, a large one will kill.
# 3 ?
# 4 looks like a Boletus or Suillus. Bolete type Polypores; they may or may not be poisonous.
BF would be right in this case; don't eat the Mushrooms!
Glad he is there to protect you.
very cool pics, Kassy, thank you for venturing where some of us (ok me) do not dare go ;) I don't think those were paw prints, I think it was malakai!
A generalization, but helpful....amanita death angel mushrooms tend to turn blue when cut....not all of them, but most of them....better rule of thumb....only eat what you KNOW is safe....if someone insists a mushroom is safe, let them eat it first....grin
LOL Jean, why do you think I didn't touch the puffballs for sooooooooooooooo long. Remember, I have been coming to my BF's house for almost 5 years now.
Dave, no worries! I would never take any of the mushrooms from the Forty!! Not sure if I would even take a puff ball from out there if I found one!
Number 3 is just a side shot of number 2. I wasn't about to run out there to take more pictures.............LOL
Honest, I didn't even touch them!
Oh Lynn, it's going to get better! And I'm pretty use to walking around in a woods. My Dad had a Forty at one time to and I use to go there, and we always had woods near by at Mom's. That's where I would find May Flowers ^_^
Now without a gun, I wouldn't go! Were no bare sitings back then, but have been a lot of them now.
OK here goes more.
Kassy your making me want to go to my other property, but I can't get hubby to go there! Gonna take kids there this spring though...can't wait!
Always knew you were a wise woman with a strong sense of self preservation Kassy....GRIN
Ferns? I heard ferns...that means plants....wow do I have a plant addiction or what?
I wonder if they have a 12 step program for plant addicts?
well you need plants to get oxygen right?
and since i'm a nasty smoker I figure I have to have twice as many plants...
and since hubby smokes too then I gotta have 4 times as many
and my 19 year old smokes so that makes 6 times as many
and then 4 other kids...so I need 10 times as many as everyone else to make up for them
and then if you double that...that makes 20 times as many just to come close to our "carbon footprint" Right?
LOL Lynnie....oh wait I don't think I left any paths in my front garden...at least not intentionally!
