Happy Imbolg (or Candlemas, or Groundhog Day)! Now we commemorate the coming of spring, which is surely around the corner. On a rainy weekend, thanks to what seems to be a strong El Nino weather pattern forming this winter, we visited one of our favorite places, Salt Point State Park on the northern Sonoma Coast. Our mushroom harvest fed us for three dinners and an omelette-rich breakfast, the fungi thriving with all the moisture.
Rather than my usual plethora of words, I thought I’d feature photos this time, showing the fabulous diversity of fungi, lichens, and mosses there and that we’re also lucky enough to have in our garden. Grateful for rain, in this drought-heavy region!
