SNOW!

It's snowing on and off today---just recently tons of snow was falling from the sky, looking like large white feathers floating to the ground, so fast everything became white within minutes! It's not really cold enough to stick and stay around, but as quickly as it just came down, it blanketed everything, teasing us with most-likely false hope that it'll last...





On a side note, a friend stopped by today to show us his latest finds---these are King Bolete mushrooms---yes, that's really how big they are---no photoshop involved! They're known as porcini mushrooms in Italy, Bolete in English speaking countries. He found these in the forests near the coast. Lucky us, he left a smaller one for us to eat---guess they're quite the delicacy!



Hoping for more snow......

Ok a couple of things. First I am so glad you posted. I'v missed you. Second those mushrooms look like they are from the super sized world on Super Mario 3. Lastly...if you do not write a book with your awsome story telling talent than I just don't know what I am going to do!!!
You are a special lady...enjoy the snow -Karla

Great photos of the snow! Love the tree with the red berries! We had a very brief mild dusting here in the Portland suburbs. By the time we went "ooh" and "aah," it was gone! And those mushrooms...kinda weird me out. Are mushrooms supposed to get that big on this planet? :-)
