What is it? No, it's not a baseball, although it's actually larger than one. This is a mushroom. Those of you who live in areas with normal rainfall might not think that's noteworthy, but Wyoming -- especially southeastern Wyoming where I live -- is a fairly arid region. We rarely see mushrooms. Now, thanks to the considerably heavier than normal rainfall that we had a few weeks ago, they've cropped up.
Yes, not just one, but a number of them decided that the prairie grass was a good place to grow. I wonder if any of our local wildlife will eat them.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
