Morchella



with our mountains on fire
we begin to dream of spring
mushrooms
the delectable morel fungi

they spring from the soil the year after a forest wildfire
beacons of new life

  2. I love all of your mushroom art, they are so pretty! And I didn't know about that fact, that they spring up after a forest fire!

    1. Thank you Rain. Yes, the first spring after a wildfire they are plentiful, at least around here. I think when the soil hits 55F. Not sure about that part.
