After the rains last week, I went out to forage for some mushrooms on our property. I was so delighted to find chanterelles were up in abundance---YUM! We have white and the golden ones. We have quite a few edible mushrooms---boletes, honey, candycaps (and oysters sometimes on the old, dying alders.) We sauteed the chanterelles in a bit of butter and ate them as a snack. If it wasn't so cold I would have done some outdoor sketches. In the meanwhile, I have some sculptural work I need to start now that all the cups were tagged and shipped out.
This is a godwit with its upward curved beak holding an olive branch. Peace.
