Nature’s Art #11.

Hello everyone! As I sit here typing I can see out the window, it’s a cloudy day once again, but mild also.  There are beautiful snowflakes falling gently again, just like yesterday.  Just a few birds out there, some sitting in the bushes, some at the feeder. Just the tiniest birds out there right now, the chickadees, nuthatches and goldfinches.  All getting their turn at the food supplied to them.  Muffin is in the window watching, but not too interested though.  She’s eating her grass right now, for her the most interesting thing at the moment.  Now if the squirrel was here, that would definitely get Muffin excited.  Squirrels and chipmunks are her favorite.  Though birds will excite her if they come close to the window, but they stay over at the feeders and that’s 6.5 feet (about 2 meters) away.

And now for today’s art in nature to enjoy…


I like taking pics of the mushrooms from underneath as the sun hits them from above.  This one is a tan colored mushroom about 3 inches (about 7.5cm) across.  I don’t know the name however, but I doubt it’s on the edible list.IMG_8266

These mushrooms actually felt like a fuzzy peach and about the same size.  They do open completely flat topped however and about 4 to 5 inches (10 to 12.5cm) across.

There is our picks of art in nature for today, I hope you enjoy looking at these different mushrooms and hopefully I can start showing some with names soon.  Have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Muffin would definitely prefer squirrels.😹😹🙄
      I have pics of so many more yet, not sure how many I have so far, I should count them. Plus there is many spring mushrooms that I don’t have yet. Hopefully I can expand the number even more this year.
      Thanks Ribana!😁😸📷🍄🍄

      • A wide collection of mushrooms 🍄 That’s very interesting 😉 Are really beautiful! My grandparents used to live in the mountains and I loved our walks into the forests…I always looked for mushrooms but never touched them 🤪
        Muffin is lucky to have so much friends there 😉🐿😻😸

      • It’s actually quite interesting to touch them and feel all the different textures.😃🍄 Although I have read that some can be poisonous even to touch. I don’t think we have any of those around here though. I hope not anyway.😬🍄🍄🙀

      • I was scared to touch them because I thought may be poisonous…maybe a little bit too exaggerated but…I was a kid….actually thinking about it, I would not touch them even now 🤪🤪
        You just make sure you wash your hand carefully after touching them 😉😻 and before touching Muffin 😻😻

      • Oh yes, I definitely wash my hands good after touching these mushrooms and before touching Muffin or eating.😃😺 I think those ones that feel like a peach are the most interesting so far. Some are so smooth, they feel like plastic, some are sticky, some rough.😀 I should probably find out what they are first, before touching them though.🤔🍄🍄🤪😜Enjoy your evening Ribana!


  1. Steve, is this happening only to me? the second mushroom reminds me of a mushroom now and i feel hungry. Both are beautiful, but the second one is tasty my tongue starts to water, wait time for snaks 😉 😀 😀 😀

    • Hi Simon! I don’t think you would want to eat any of these, might end up in the hospital with a very sore stomach!😬😳🍄🍄There are so many interesting and different kinds of mushrooms around here. Just most can’t be eaten.😕🍄 I now have a book that shows over 60 different varieties that are edible, so that will help.😀 Some are very easy to identify, some are tricky,😳 those are not for me. I want easy.😂😹

      • Glad you’re feeling better Simon! Can’t bring food for a week? You need bigger pockets.🤪😄 Or a bigger suitcase. Bring stuff that keeps good, fruit,🍌🥝🍐🍎🍊🍇🍓🥒🥕🥜 certain veggies that you can eat raw. Maybe not for a week, but maybe 5 or 6 days.😂😂🙄Must be a way to figure this out. Dried fruits for snacking. Cookies.🤔🤔Yep, soon to bed, for some reason I’m tired tonight.


      • Yes Steve, Feeling better and didn’t like the food i ordered this morning ☺️😉 These people are way too spicy 🤷 in normal food also 🙄. That’s a good idea Steve. But bringing fruits, dry fruits is totally fine. That’s better i think to act tat way next time. And have minimal food here Like Salad😋 😜 Did u workout? Gud night Steve! Time for Bed ✨🤗
