4-25-09 surprised brain

Greg and I made a surprising discovery in our KC backyard this week.

Morel mushrooms!

Back in Iowa, people who love to eat these mushrooms spend springtime walking through the woods "hunting" morel mushrooms.....since they usually grow best in hidden places it seems...........and here we have some growing right under our Forsythia bushes. We saw about four or five. A few were cut off by our raking..... that's when we first noticed the strange pieces in our rake.

For those of you who love morels..... I'm wondering if these pictures are making your mouth water? I have always found them to be rather bizarre! But if you put enough butter on anything it can be edible!
