When the Rain Comes

After a record dry summer, we now have had a week of record-breaking rain. Now we aren't talking tropical deluges, but we have gotten a couple-three inches at Steve's house over the last few days, and for us, that's a lot.

Come the rains we also get mushrooms, and there are four or five of them under the Oregon Grape next to the arbor vitae out front that have, well, mushroomed up in the last few days ...

Largest of these, (above) is as big as a pie-plate, nine-inches across. 

Cool, huh?
