Morel the Mushroom Creepling


If you can't tell already I like Mushrooms. This is Morel he is up to no good! Morels are a real harbinger of spring here. I don't normally see them around our parts until May. This guy is arrived a little early.
Real Morels are a delicacy. There is a wonderful website if you'd like to learn more about them. There are even Festivals celebrating this fungi.
Mushrooms are a symbol of luck & prosperity and long life.

Becca - he is so funny! I love his slightly nervous expression. Maybe he is worried about getting eaten! I do love mushrooms, to eat and to look at. Happy weekend! xox Pam

I don't like to eat mushrooms much, although there are some ways to prepare them, whether cooked or raw, which made me appreciate them more (with cream and spice, for instance), but I am fascinated by them, for various reasons:

I love this one, some kind of creepy mushroom that I could see in either a Super Mario game or a Dungeons & Dragon game.
