being thankful

October 11, 2020

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

not much of a celebration this year

with the change in weather I’m back to baking bread

the rain has arrived and mushrooms are popping up everywhere

in the neighbor’s garden this one is as large as a birdbath

possibly an Amanita rubescens  

and in my garden

possibly Dermocybe phoenicea or Western red-dye

if I’m correct they give a good, strong red dye

but they are small and not many of them

I may try a tiny skein of wool – when the rain stops

lots to be thankful for

    Your bread looks excellent! I am rather hoping that mushrooms appear soon in a local field where I know what they are and that they are safe to eat! Glad that you have things to be thankful for – it is easy to get low at this time of year and the pandemic doesn’t help.

      Sue – we’ve just had our first major winter storm, wild wind and heavy rain. Early in the year but weather, of course, is changing. I love this autumn, seasonal change time but dread the long grey, wet winter. More mushrooms this year than I’ve ever seen before.

    For the most part I have to steer reluctantly away from eating bread but it sure looks good!

      Suzanne – I have trouble with bread too but love to make (and taste it) so I only make 2 loaves and give one away straight out of the oven.. Good to hear from you, I hope you are o.k. and managing to be safe and comfortable.

    That bread looks wonderful – I’d be thankful too if I was looking at a couple of slices of that!
