Discreet these Spring mushrooms, but I see them, they can't hide forever.
Funnily enough, just the other day I was talking to a neighbour, Monsieur Bosquet, who pointed out that this is an exceptional year for the Morel mushroom and inquired as to whether I had seen any?
I think he was taken aback by my negative response, but at that time I'd not 'bumped' into any at all and despite having a swift look in one or two places that looked likely to yield, our paths did not cross.
Today that changed. You have to tune in you see - focus. They're there, but not that apparent until you see one, which then enables you to see another, then another and then, before you know it, they're popping up everywhere.
I picked just a couple to photograph. If they're around at the weekend, and they may well be, I'll pick some more, an upside of decidedly down-side wet weather.
