In the woods . . .


I walked in the woods this morning.   It's been a banner year for fungus - everywhere you see big and little mushrooms growing where ever they can get ahold.  This find was the coolest; thought I would never see this in our woods - Indian Pipes!  I've seen them called 'ghosts of tulips past' - I love that description, the scientific name is Monotropa uniflora.
