I think I have changed the setting, so anyone can leave a comment now. Would someone please try it for me?

Surprise gifts in the grass

(This posting edited and pictures added, Sunday June 14, pm.)
After a little rainy period, the mushrooms...... These two in the front yard were larger than most of this type, the big one was about as big as a cd. (4-1/2 inches.) on Friday morning and by Saturday morning, it spread to a good 8 inches wide. Sunday evening, the bottoms are quite dark and the top is flat, now grown to almost 10 inches, and the smaller one: 8 inches. My neighbors must think I've never seen a mushroom before, I've taken so many pictures of this pair. But they have put on quite an interesting show.

And of course, I had to 'enhance' at least one of the photos. lastly, a little hover fly works on the campion blossom. There are lots of these tiny, iridescent flies around the plants. They don't sting or bite.

Oh, for cat's sake!

A slight delay. Progress has been impeded! You just can't get good help these days. But she's good at many things, like keeping me on the job, opening doors, dishing out food, brushing off fur, etc. Otherwise, she does not complain if I goof off taking pictures, loafing, or reading, when I should be getting this quilt for Joy finished and go work in the yard.

However, we've been having some pretty good summer showers this week. Keeps the water bill down, huh? I have two flats of impatients waiting to be put in, where the spring bulb foliage is ready to clear out, and they should do ok in that very shady bed. Maybe I'll be able to do that tomorrow.
