The crocuses just a bit later, mushroom heaven

Look how lovely the crocuses looked when I returned home a few hours after snapping them still asleep earlier this morning. Hello, Day! I don't think I'd like these little floral gifts so much if they didn't completely remind me of The Runaway Bunny, that darling children's book in which the bunny hides in a crocus but of course his mommy finds him. Also, I am thankful that this intrepid flower refuses to stay put underground, even when spring seems as if it will never come. crocuses in my garden

After a much-needed work-out, I went to the market and came across this gorgeous display of mushrooms. I got a sampling of all but the black trumpets and might make my brown rice risotto with them later tonight. We've got some fantastic Humboldt Fog cheese (have you discovered this delicacy? WOW) that would pair beautifully with them.
