Hail to the King!

In this case, hail to king bolete, Boletus edulis, commonly known as porcini mushrooms. A friend who is a devoted mushroom hunter found a lot of porcini at a secret spot that he will not reveal. We are fortunate that he kindly shared two porcini with us. These, he said, are two of the smaller ones.

Earlier this year, we found morels in our front yard. Sometimes we find chanterelles at local farmers markets.

Good eats!

Geez, Sue, it's not enough that your knitting projects make me envious - you have all kinds of mushrooms too (OK, now I'm also hungry ...)!

And then you photograph them artfully. If you weren't one of my best friends, I would really not like you! :-)
