Somebody needs to eat them….

“Nature alone is antique,
and the oldest art a mushroom.”

Thomas Carlyle

Toadstools and mushrooms…the prevalent fungus among us…
With all those fungi surely someone out there has to be a beneficiary…
as this squirrel is doing his best to make the most of a free meal…

One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak,
eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt
the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does,
for God has accepted them. Who are you to judge someone else’s servant?
To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand,
for the Lord is able to make them stand.

Romans 14:2-4

    Those mushrooms look so inviting. I hope they’re not poisonous. Your photography is wonderful, Julie.

    I wonder if the squirrel gets stoned? You know those things can be hallucinogenic lol

    Such great pics Julie! Squirrels are so crazy. I actually saw one eating seaweed the other day like it was popcorn. Weird.

    I am so glad you made this trip and shared the photos of the fun guy. Have some fun yourself.

    • Thanks Mark—we got home yesterday so it was short and sweet— but good!
      I pray your wife is doing better daily!!!!

        She might be moved to a skilled rehab facility tomorrow. She still has a-fib, but the surgeon is hopeful that goes away with the inflammation around the heart. We may have to pay for a taxi – the rehab van is in the shop, but anything to get closer to home and getting that hospital milestone behind us.

  5. Very interesting. We have never had a desire to try a wild mushroom, but Saturday, our son was showing us pictures of the orange mushrooms in the mountains of North Carolina. He had done research, and by the fragrant and other details, he knew what was safe. He said they were delicious.

    Such a delightful weaving of photos with very important words! Hugs to you for the grace to do so, brilliantly!

  7. How wonderful to know that squirrels can eat the mushrooms! Nice to know the wild mushrooms are good for something! ☺️ Wonderful photos, dear Julie!! I especially loke the red-topped mushrooms! I have never seen them in person. Thought they might only exist in picture books. Apparently, they are real! 🙂 💜 and hugs to you!
