We have morels!
I just found them yesterday, in an area of the yard we call Mikey’s Garden, where I know they’ve never been before, and from what I’ve read about them (see the great links, below) they’ll probably come back year after year now. So excited!
I didn’t see the little spider on the morel in the photo below until I looked at it later. I love how she blends in, and I’ll certainly be careful to try not to disturb her when we pick these.
