Since it is a rare and precious thing for all of us to get sick (and then recover) at the same time, and since that has not been happening this time around, we've also been going out on winter walks with an ever changing cast.
Here we have Mxyl
And here we have Oob pretending to be a mushroom.
No, really, that was what he told me he was doing.
If you look closely, you will see that he is amongus a humongous fungus, which, presumably gave him the mushroom idea, even though the rest is a shelf fungus and mushrooms are club fungi.
We enjoy the winter woods - no ticks or poison ivy, for one thing! But there's also a restrained beauty in the tracings of the bare trees. For me, winter is a time to enjoy textures and details, and the sculptural elegance of the trees.
