  1. yes, they are like little treasures, popping up like they do. I've never seen blue ones
  2. Also, you cannot mistake them for other, less edible ones, which is a big plus, in my eyes
  3. oh, the pics are stolen on Wiki My dad taught me to eat them. That was way before the times of the interwebnet, and we (my mom and all the children) were very suspicious of the ink caps (what a perfect name! German name is Schopftintling - tufted inkling). We didn't want him to eat them. Nobody had much of an idea about mushrooms because aside from champignons on the horse pastures, there weren't many edibles around in the marshes ... So eventually Dad, frustrated with his arguing family in front of a pile of fresh-cut mushrooms, just stuffed one into his mouth and swallowed. When he was still alive after half an hour, we let him eat the rest and tried them, too. They really are delicious.
  4. Oh yes, I've already seen amazing mushrooms. I really like touching them - a big, healthy mushroom has such an amazing texture. Sadly most of them are immediately destroyed (by children or idiots ) Last year I picked and ate some mushrooms; I do not know the english name. when they are really fresh and do not start the dissolving, they are wonderful. You cannot buy them because they're too easily damaged and soon start their rather icky dissolving process, but picked and eaten fresh within a couple of hours …
  5. so pretty and how convenient you wore neon green mittens … nice contrast!
  6. phew. We have weird warm, wet weather. Rather fall-y, but too warm for the season. Nice for walking, though, as it's only raining in showers, so I am not really complaining.
  7. bess, I had that the other day, too. Goli, snow?? Today I am sleepy from doing nothing, basically.
  8. we were close to frost two nights ago rather early. Migi says, the best fall colours he has seen so far were in Kyoto. I envy him Kyoto even without fall colours
  9. we are getting fall colours too, not as spectacular as in the country, but pretty enough.
  10. I am very lazy at the moment, I feel like I have permission
  11. sorry to be so invisible - Migi came home from Brasil a week ago yesterday and was not feeling too good. On Tuesday he had a big fat flu, and Friday I had caught it, too … Was sick all weekend and I'm still not really on my feet. Went to the doctor in the morning and have sick leave for the whole week. Yay! Pure luxury. So I guess I will be here a bit more frequently for the rest of the week. Planning on sleeping a lot, walking and some too. The one perfect thing about not being freelance anymore - paid sick leave. Halleluja.

    nope, not really. It was supposed to be for somebody who loves rainbow colours, but we both decided it would be better on a younger person I am sure it will find a good home sooner or later. The good thing with this kind of stuff, it keeps ...
