Things in My Yard -- Things in a Row -- Two Questions -- Please Identify
These mushrooms came up in a crooked ROW after a nice rain. I tease Mrs. Jim about eating them but of course she says NO. Then I suggest making Tea from them. That doesn't work with her either.
Here they are up close. If anyone knows about eating these please let me know. Click on the picture to make them bigger.
Adi (Adi in her younger day with Harry Husker picture) doesn't mind posing with them. But notice that she likes me to take profile shots of her. She is proud of her Beagle form.
These flowers come from bulbs every spring. We don't know what they are but Mrs. Jim says that they have the word, "star," in their name.
Click on them, you may know their name for us.
She was given a plant several years ago and it just wasn't one to keep in our house forever. So she, we, or I, planted it in our flower bed on the right hand proper line.
Every year there are more and the ROW gets longer and thicker. Growing in with these flowers are a lot of wild black berry vines. A friend cleared out most of them from this bed but skipped where the flowers are.
When the flowers go away then we only see these large leaves. They grow to three to five feet tall! I don't know if bulbs are then when the flowers are, but I suppose so. I will check later on.
And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about my and your travel, economizing, and parallel parking. Answers very interesting, you can go back (May 10th) and check. Although I am 'dang good' at the parallel parking, some of you sound better. Others don't even try it.
My Two Questions for this week:
1. What things growing around you that you don't know thier names but would like to know? After using Google, how should one go about finding out?
When Google doesn't work, I ask Mrs. Jim. She knows a lot more than I ever did wor will but these two have her stumped.
2. Do you like mushrooms? Do you or would you ever eat them from the wild?
I love them! Salads, pizza, fried, gravey, mixed with cooked vegetables, and whold with a bit of salt are some of my favorites. Mrs. Jim likes them in certain ways, like pizza. But she really doesn't like them not cooked..
