Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,

Ever heard of a Morel Mushroom?
For some people, Morels are a big deal!

My mom is one of those people.
She has hunted for morels for a very long time,
without much success.


Until last spring!!

Last spring was our first spring in the house we live in now.
We are blessed to have 6 acres of woods and lots of the
ever popular Morel Mushrooms.

Kind of Ugly? Don't you think?

But to the "shroom hunter" they are beautiful!

So..... on Sunday afternoon the hunt began!

Actually we picked up these cement garden statues
for my mom for Mother's Day.
My husband decided that we should put them out in the woods.
Then when she was out hunting she would come across them!

So here she is.....

With her little mesh bag & silly boots!

Having a wonderful time "shrooming."

The bigger...

the better!!

In our family it becomes a competition.
Who can find the biggest!
Who can find the most!
So even if you don't like to eat them
you still like to hunt for them!

Here's my Step-dad with his great find!

These two didn't find much!

They were just modeling their trendy rubber boots!!


All in all a successful spring day of mushroom hunting!

Happy Monday Everyone!!
