That's how I cam across the red velvet ant.
That's also how I came to meet the seventy year old box turtle.
It is how a little butterfly cam to land on my finger.
Due to the excess of moisture, bizarre mushrooms have popped up overnight in our lawn, and they look like something from out of a story book.
We are not going to eat these mushrooms, because a search of the Missouri conservation site does not have them listed as either poisonous or non-poisonous.They are not listed at all. A friend says this is because these mushrooms don't normally grow here. They belong in the northwest.
But the fruit on the trees continues to ripen and fall to the ground, and we are definitely eating that. We all love peaches, and we enjoy getting them a the peak of their ripeness.
It is always a pleasure to watch Bow savor a ripe peach.
