Yesterday it was rainy and drizzly, overcast and foggy, and I wasn't outside for very long. Today I awoke to a glorious sunny day, and I was definitely going to take advantage of the beautiful weather! "Zoe! Moosey! Molly! Atten-HUT! We will now be climbing to the top of the hill and examining every square inch for all things cool and fun!" Up the hill we scrambled and along the ridge we ambled, having a marvelous time for the next hour and a half!

The mushrooms are simply exploding out of the ground right now! White, tan, brown and chocolate brown, in many shapes and sizes, and appearing in singles or groups of two or three! This time of year is my arguably my favorite for photography because I am so crazy about mushrooms. They are so unique and interesting to me, though I admit that trying to identify them is a total nightmare.

If you remember the trio of mushrooms I shared a few days ago (and the younger version a few days before that), the pair above were growing right next to that log. (By the way, I checked on the trio, and they are shriveled up now and gone...but no worries because my pictures will keep them alive forever! :) The second I discovered these two, I knew I had my Picture of the Day! It's very hard to top a pair of mushrooms that look like they are in love! :)

Philip St. John Basil Rathbone, MC (13 June 1892 – 21 July 1967) was a South African-born British actor. He rose to prominence in the UK as a Shakespearean stage actor and went on to appear in over 70 films, primarily costume dramas, swashbucklers and, occasionally, horror films.
