...when yellows and reds grow out of trees!
Rick and I noticed this glorious fungus in its early stages last weekend. When I remembered it again this morning, it was in "full flower." I can only remember seeing it one other fall; don't know if I've missed it other years, or if it takes special conditions to grow. It's on the trunk of an ancient, mostly dead, cherry tree near the house. I assume it has a name; anyone know what it is?
I talked to my folks today; they were on their way home after having done most of what they could for my niece. They got a refund on their plane tickets to Oregon, but now have to start from scratch looking for reasonable fares and a time frame that works for their schedule. Sigh; I was so looking forward to seeing them now. :-(
I am enjoying our cooler, wetter, greener weather. My dahlias look pretty happy, too.
That's it for today from . . .
