Mushroom Hunting!

We took a few hours to go to one of my favorite places, today.

This cute little mushroom was NOT what we were looking for…

But this trillium caught our eye and we just had to stop and take a closer look.

The may apples were a good sign that we were looking in the right place.

And, well… This log just struck my fancy. I loved the textures of the peeling bark.

When you’re looking for teeny, tiny mushrooms, you see teeny tiny flowers like this one.

But don’t move! Look around first, ‘cause there’s bound to be more!

I guess if you stand on a log, you don’t have to worry about stepping on a mushroom.

Once you start finding them, it’s awfully hard to stop.

And while you’re taking the time to do some looking, you start seeing all kinds of wonderful, amazing things.

Great beauty in the everyday, simple things.

We went hunting for mushrooms but found so much more.
