Fungus Schmungus #4

I saw these mushrooms growing on a dead tree while walking the dog. They are called Dryad’s saddle or pheasant back mushrooms. They are edible. Here are two links to videos: Foraging for Dryad’s Saddle/Pheasant Back Mushroom How to cook Pheasant backs & Ramps (Dryads Saddle & Wild leeks)


Does your dog need a bath? Or possibly a new tail?

Miniature Petrified Barn

This tiny barn is made of petrified wood and is on display at the Petrified Wood Museum.

Llewellyn Spaniel

I met this guy at Hobby Lobby. I realized I had never seen this breed of dog before.

Fall Officially Here

I walked the dog this morning and all the trees in the park were dropping leaves at a constant, steady rate. Never seen leaves fall like this before.

Latte Art

This latte art was created by Kevin at Barista’s Daily Grind in Kearney, Nebraska. It would be fun to create a similar type of art for hot chocolate with whipped cream, marshmallows, and chocolate/caramel/strawberry syrup. 

Newfoundland Dogs

These two beautiful dogs waited outside patiently for their master at a coffee shop in Keystone Ski Village, Colorado.
