Earth Tongues















I took my blipfoto of these toadstools first thing this morning, not realising it was going to rain all day again.  I came home from work (and a little ball dress reconnoitring with Alice) in the dark so no more outdoor photography.

I don't really know much about mycology but Google took me to two interesting keys to help me to track down my toadstool and discover they are Geoglossum I think.  Earth tongue is very descriptive when you see a mass of them from the window, but they look different close up.


 


The word for today was quarter.  Perhaps I could say I've spent a quarter of my day on or around my computer.  Definitely not a waste of time: I've learnt a lot about toadstools, found out about  Stephen Leacock because of this blip and discussed various houses near my mother's house (where I grew up) while referring to Google Street View.  I do like the internet!

I probably spent a quarter of yesterday on my computer too!! Won't manage that today - just checking in quickly before heading out. Have a great day! xx
