It must be September.
Our lawn is covered in these crazy mushrooms. I know they’re Ink Caps since I did all the research on them last year.
They make a colossal mess . . .
. . . dripping black ink everywhere . . .
. . . so that’s what I’m going to tell hubby when he sees that I haven’t cut the grass (it’s too yucky) . . .
. . . and I just haven’t felt like it . . .
. . . I’m feeling tired today since I woke up at 4:00am which seems to be becoming a pattern. Ugh . . . if I could only sleep till 5:00 . . .
Tonight we’re going to an annual autumn dinner in the city. (Now that seems to have woken me up a bit!) It’s called the “Feastival of Fine Chefs”. All the great restaurants in our fine city get together in one large building and proceed to cook up a storm. Each person gets tickets (randomly) for an appetizer, soup, salad, entree, and dessert – each one from a different restaurant. It’s really quite fun and the food is always outstanding.

What a unique looking mushroom! It almost looks like a decorative hat. We had one mushroom growing in our yard and it was big and fat like a big sausage. Ugh. I took pictures, but hated them afterwards.
Your dinner tonight sounds so fun! And I’m with you on the waking at odd hours trap. Been battling it for years now. :/
And while you are looking for those black stretching pants, find that big tent top too…that way you can just eat and not worry about any buttons popping….hee hee. Sounds like great fun. Those mushrooms look like something from a Tim Burton movie…creepy. And I am not even going to comment about sleep…we are not exactly friendly.
laughing at the stretchy pants remark. :) i’d love to have mushrooms growing in my yard as that would mean we got enough rain to make them grow! :)
those are so crazy looking, there are some odd mushrooms out there growing right now:/
sorry you are so tired!
Oh I wish those were growing in our yard…they are so cool and photogenic!!!

Very fun! I still have some amazing Hipstamatic shots of these from last year! Maybe I’ll post them! Hope you had fun at your dinner – sounds so yummy!

I have never seen these before! Wow I don’t think I would eat them even if they were edible! I’m guessing they are not! Great captures hope your dinner and stretchy pants worked out well!

Those ‘shrooms might be a mess on the lawn…but they make one nice photo :)
