May Showers Grow Morel Towers?

After several days of utterly idyllic weather – endless sun, mid-70’s, light breezes – we awoke today to not-quite-40 degrees and drizzle. While this might sound like complaint, it’s actually the opposite. The morels have just started popping up, and like so many spring ephemerals, they need water and slightly cooler temperatures to thrive. While the grass is also thriving this weekend, I’ll be out in the woods. Whistle if you need me šŸ˜‰

    • Your luck must have seen us through šŸ™‚ We found a half dozen that indicates the mushroom season is about to break open. We’ll be in the hills all day tomorrow, and perhaps even Sunday.

  2. Nice! It’s sleeting here…sigh….I hear you had good weather while we were gone. It was in the 80’s some of the days we were tromping around DC in suits. Also while we were stuck in traffic in Georgetown. But I wasn’t complaining! Today it’s 40 something. Summer is welcome to stop by now any time. Remind me of this when I’m hot this August.

    • We did have good weather, but we are currently “enjoying” the same garbage you’ve got downstate šŸ˜‰ The seasonal changes conspire to keep us on our toes – either complaining or reminding ourselves not to complain.
