Winter Wonderland arrived in time for our Winter Solstice Celebrations. Our W.S. fires will be on Dec 26, this year when the whole L&L family can come. 

The winter nights fill most of our days; we don't see the sun at all because it makes its journey from horizon to horizon deep through the thick forest.  

Mixed greens and kale continue to fill our salad bowls several times a week, to our delight. I make lemon and olive oil dressings using a variety of herbs and spices I dried  last autumn from my garden in Spokane. 

Because we continue to have a lot of tasks to do in the forest I see outside my bedroom window I will not be planting the variety of conifers I want to put around the perimeter of the clearing; I am searching for and reading up on the species that grow naturally on this property. The huge cedar stump that was bulldozed off the place where the house sits lies like a sleeping monster reminding me of the once ancient forest that covered this ground. We will tidy up the brush that now obscures it. We will put the raised beds on the meadow within my view from the bedroom and plant clover as ground cover.

It is a wondrous time of year with plenty of time contemplate on the past year and meditate about the coming year. Good health, joy, and peace settle down over our little community deep in the woods of NE WA state. 

May your days be filled to overflowing in the feelings, thoughts and actions you desire that come your way!

I've been following Daniel's suggestion and saving my urine to add to the garden. Amazingly, I produce more than I thought--and I'm not a big liquid consumer. I don't dilute it, just toss the bucket's worth in the garden. I'm eager to see the results next Spring. I'm glad I live alone!

According to this article, some animals eat them too.

It makes one wonder if amanita evolved to be so colorful and attractive to be eaten. Then what?

If it is amanita, it's psychedelic. You'd be seeing colors a while after ingesting it. AKA the food of the gods.

I would assume that, too. Your soil must be in good health, indeed.

My goodness, yes! Take very good care of your liver and all other parts of your body!

Joan, Amanita is poisonous. From reading, no reports of fatalities, but I plan on keeping what is left of my liver. :-)
I will just let it do its thing and return to the earth.
Our yard has many mushrooms. I assume that means good soil health.

It is so pretty; why the caution? I know nothing about mushrooms, obviously, other than what I just now read..

What do you intend to do with it? Or to it?

Comment by Daniel W on December 14, 2015 at 9:13pm

In our yard today.  I think this is Amanita muscaria.

Regardless of whether that ID is correct, we are not getting near this one.
