It rained here last week, a welcome respite to our drought. Rain here is usually delivered in short bursts of showers that pop up briefly, followed by sunny skies. Last week, though, we had a whole day of light rain, fog, and mist that seemed to heal the earth and encouraged the unusual proliferation of mushrooms all over the place.
We rarely see mushrooms growing here. It is too dry. After the rain I noticed a proliferation of mushrooms in our front yard all around a dead tree stump.
I think they look like something you would see on a coral reef. Their appearance gave me hope for us, that the drought will end and that the Earth still has lovely surprises for us.
What are you noticing in your yard these days? What surprises do you hope lurk there, hidden?
