I thought about just frying up a few for DH to try. Oh wait, not a good idea without a positive ID. Boletes are edible, but these don't quite look the same as the pics in my mushroom book.

What would that tell you?

The colour of the spores is often listed in mushroom identifying books. Sometimes it's the only easy way to tell apart two similar looking 'shrooms.

Today was Labor Day, so we labored planting 9 trees. Fortunately my 93 year old father-in-law came over with his Ford tractor with the post hole auger mounted and made shorter work of the job than it otherwise would have been.

Here's just one picture from near Taos New Mexico. I loved the constantly changing puffy cloud formations we seldom see here. More pics to follow in the trip story when it's completed.

Ooo, cool boots, Dawg!

Kayelle, I love that photo! And puffy clouds. When we lived back home I would lie on my back and watch them drift by - even as an adult. The kids and I would spend a lazy summer afternoon saying "that one looks like..." and "don't you think that one over there..." for an hour or two. Great memory. We still see nice clouds on occasion, but nowhere near as often or as artistic as the ones back home. Big difference in having the prevailing wind some across Lake Erie or across the Berkshire Mountains, I guess. At least here I can lay on the futon and look through the sun room's glass ceiling. A bonus for my old bones!

Beautiful pic, Kay....and I love that bridge, even though I'm kind of afraid of heights. LOL. We get clouds like that often here - your pic reminds me to not take them for granted and to look at them through fresh eyes.

Pretty snazzy boots there, Dawg!
