after the rains

“… millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves
on a rainy Sunday afternoon.”

― Susan Ertz

It is amazing how quickly after a rain a mushroom sprouts its “fruit” and within a mere few hours
has “blossomed” into its full regalia.
And yes this one is indeed poisonous.

“Shower, O heavens, from above,
and let the skies rain down righteousness;
let the earth open, that salvation may sprout forth,
and let it cause righteousness to spring up also;
I the Lord have created it.

Isaiah 45:8

    Wonderful photos! We have had an incredible amount of rain recently resulting in unusual flooding. I’m grateful for a couple of sunny days, yesterday and today so far. The quote by Susan Ertz is so appropriate in our society. Enjoy your day!

    I’m always amazed by how quickly mushrooms sprout up too! I had a dog once that would eat anything so I really had to be alert when letting him out back. A problem for sure if I had not yet had my morning coffee.

    • I looked up the mushrooms and discovered that they were indeed poisonous—the fellow who’s info I was reading was a mushroom guru and he explained that most dogs, particularly young dogs and young children opt to explore via taste—and so it is imperative to keep and eye out when the mushrooms are “blooming”!
      Gives new meaning to casually walking the dog… 🙂
