US & OZ: Day 4

So, the regularly gorgeous Kate sent me this photo this morning:
Mary always keeps fresh flowers around the house. 
I have no idea what kind these are, but they sure are perty. :)

ummm...I am pretty sure they are lillies...did you really not know that Kate?  
What will your mother say??

I have to say, looking at this photo made me just a little bit, just a tiny twinge (really teensy) jealous.  Seeing the bright blooms and the sunny weather through the glass made ME.WANT.THAT!!  

oh, ahem, cough cough, sorry...lost my place there for a second.  

You see, as I was looking out my windows it was dark and dreary and wet and cold.  
I kept waiting for the elusive sun to peek out, but alas, it did not.  So, on went the wellies and rain jacket and out I went with my camera.  I had spied something earlier on my way down the driveway and I knew I wanted to photograph it.  

Here it is:
Mushrooms growing out of a fallen tree.  Taken around 5pm.  

That's just how much it has been raining.  
Mushrooms are sprouting up all over the place.  
And toadstools.

Notice the contrast in the photos?  
Bright and colorful vs. Dark and dreary.  


  1. I love the mushroom picture! And my mother knows I am clueless about flowers. I know what a rose looks like....does that count? :)

  2. haha, yes, that totally counts. props to you!!
