With Wet Weather...

... comes mushrooms! And as you know if you read this blog, I am always on the lookout for a good mushroom find. This is a great one. Last year my Mom came across one of these Amanita mushrooms while out on a walk. I was not with her though, and missed out on the photograph opportunity. Coincidentally enough, this year, a huge patch of them grew right in her neighbors front yard! I could not resist getting out there in between rain showers to snap a few photos of the bright red toadstools-to-be. A great find!

Another Mystery Plant

I can always count on my blog readers to help me out with a mystery plant. Anyone know what plant has these bright purple berries in the late autumn?

UPDATED: A few people have told me that this is a Callicarpa plant. Thanks everyone!
