I spent a good part of yesterday cleaning the front and back yards of wind scattered debris. The first day of what usually amounts to about a week of cleaning and organizing that marks the arrival of the new season.
Rough pruning and bed clean-up will start next as well as relocating plants much like one would rearrange furnishings once they look out of place.
This pic is a very intense looking mushroom cap that I discovered growing at the base of a Bradford Pear tree that I had recently planted. It sprung up almost over night, as mushrooms tend to do, shortly after planting. I thought the leathery texture looked great.
