With daylight savings now in effect, coupled with Fall rain and cooler temperatures, the mushrooms are popping up all over the forest. Big and small, tall and short. A real treat for the gnome dinner table. Somehow they know the good ones from the bad. In the morning, I’ll see a few picked and stacked up, but will be gone the next day. Maybe they dry the mushrooms to use in a stew or eat them whole. Or, perhaps they make a strong tea instead of beer! Oh, they enjoy the beer! Some roof repairs are needed using fallen pine cones as roof tiles. Beautiful fall colors now in the forest and the trails. Firewood gathering continues. You can almost smell the smoke from the gnomes' chimneys. All is well
