I've been walking in our woods regularly, just enjoying this amazing spring and reflecting on so many blessings, the best of which is my Mom's miraculous return to health. I've also been listening to a really good audiobook while on my walks, Wild, by Cheryl Strayed, about a young woman who hikes the Pacific Crest Trail alone- it's been good motivation to push myself just a little further!
Morel mushrooms and a turkey feather found today!
I've been searching almost daily for morel mushrooms, unsure of how this strangely warm weather would affect the timing of their appearing. I was really surprised to find some in a new place today, and I hope this is the beginning and not the end of their season! It's now thunder storming, so hopefully the new moisture will help to encourage more mushrooms to come up.
My friend Marti has encouraged me to make more large felted wall hangings, and this one titled "Spring" was inspired during a moment of frustration with doing taxes. Both my studio and the beautiful woods were beckoning, so I decided to create and this was the result. You can find it in my Etsy Store!
