it's that time of the week again! hope yours is starting off well, and here's a little fungi love to get you started:
scaly vase (or wooly) chanterelle, gomphus floccosus
smoky-gilled woodlover (conifer tuft)?
rosy russula russula rosacea
a white/grey incarnation of fluted black elfin saddle, helvella lacunas. there were many black ones in the area too.
the rain forecast for today hasn't started yet (wait, is that a hint of blue above?), but thankfully after an ugly effort spread out over three days i have cleared most of the carpet of fallen leaves from our yard...until a bit of wind blows to bring down the rest. argh. at least the chickadees sang cheerfully for me while i did it. they are flitting in and out of the birdhouse while i look out the window, reminding me they could use a top up of seed. i'll do that and then i'll make myself my own breakfast. don't forget, the shop will be updated at 10!
