After a little teasing, I got a fistful of cotton. I don't know if there is time before a frost for the rest of the pods to open. But I think this is pretty cool!
On Saturday my husband was dealing with the chickens and came into the house saying he had something to show me. Look at this puff ball he found:
You can see how big it is by the folded newspaper it's sitting on. Can you believe it? We had never seen one this size before. Our son, the mushroom expert, says that these are edible. I don't think I'll try it though. What about you, would you eat it?
We had to take advantage of this beautiful weather, so yesterday we went to Shades State Park for a picnic and hike. What a wonderful time! The only thing that would have made it better would be having our oldest son Justin with us.
|We climbed down a ladder to get to this ravine that leads to the creek.|
|Tad enjoyed the hike!|
|This rock tower has been here for a few years. We added to it.|
|This is the creek we canoe on. No canoeing this month!|
I will have the drawing for my giveaway on Thursday. Good luck!
