Here we are in winter and going on for about the third week of rain, though we had a spot of sun today. Sprinkled through the damp garden beds these little jewels have been appearing, the most beautiful little miniature orange mushrooms, sprouting from the wood mulch we laid on the garden last summer. They make the most beautiful little fairy rings among the plants and I couldn't resist bringing one in for a photo session.
I'm suffering with one of those draggy change of seasons colds. I thought I'd shaken it off on Monday but it came back with a vengeance and I'm croaky and slow. Lunch today was the best medicine leftover minestrone with toasted pane di casa toast.
