The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Good Enough to Eat

This fungi growing on the side of a downed tree (most I find are that way) looked to me like a pumpkin filled pastry. It was about the size of a hockey puck, not that I have ever seen or held a hockey puck.

And notice how that sugar syrup is oozing out from that sugary coating.  Yum!


  1. Looks good and yummy only that orange is a bit to much but so is also a pumpkin.

  2. It looks you put your baking results in the wood and makes photos of them!

  3. sounds like you need some baked goods, stat!

  4. Sorry John doesn't look to yummy to me. You need a sugar fix

  5. It really does look delicious John... I enjoy frying Puffballs but didn't get any this year.

  6. Fungi always seem to look so other wordly!

    Peace :)
