  1. the mushroom reminds me of tramping through damp, hot, steamy woods, fighting off early mosquitos, gnats and avoiding cobwebs springing out of nowhere, nose to the ground, encouraging the dogs to 'find them' even though they have no idea what's going on, the surprise and joy of each find, and then the frantic searching for a hat or shirt to pile them in, until you can get to the house to put them in salt water... and i dont even eat them..

  2. HUGE mushroom! Wouldn't that be something to come across during a walk in the forest?

  3. Those are pretty funny. We humans just seem to love those morels! Last year is my first time to pick them, still eating them... yum. Plus they are magically wild looking creatures!

  6. Where is that mushroom? I'm surprised my mushroom-loving family (from childhood) never dragged me off to see that!

  7. Personally, I like keeping track of time more than looking at a mushroom, but hey, they may just be me.....................:)

  8. I hope that clock is weather-proofed! I never have quite understood the reason these giants are put up...

  9. Hmmm...just wondering why you would build such a mushroom. Is it a mushroom farm? Interesting architecture!

  15. I love these kind of big random things that towns have! On a trip cross-country one time, my mom and I saw a giant cheese, a giant mouse (separate place) and a giant apple.
