THE FLYING SAUCERS HAVE LANDED


Sorry, nothing that exciting, just mushrooms in the grass that reminded me of a few B movies I watched in my youth.


I found them in the front of the house we were staying at in Corolla.  


One crash landed!


Another hiding in the tall grass.


They came in peace.  No longer able to fly again, except in my imagination.

I hope so Albert, I hope so.  What say you?

  1. We have this kind around here, but I don't have near the cool and fanciful imagination that you have. I love it. Now whenever I see mushrooms, I will always think of spaceships.

  4. They do look like an alien invasion - and I hope that Einstein was right here as he was about so many things.

  6. It is interesting to see those mushrooms under the sunlight were taken different angles.

  7. This is the time of year to make a feast of edible wild mushrooms. Earlier this week I picked enough honey mushrooms to blend them into a sauce with dry sherry, sour cream, parmesan cheese, butter, salt, pepper and dill. It was wonderful with grilled chicken and zucchini fritters. Too bad they don't last a little longer!

    1. Sounds delicious David. I am glad you can identify mushrooms with confidence. The field mushrooms I remember from our old greengrocer back in my childhood, the taste of them was beyond comparison.

  10. Like the space-ship thought, but I think they are like little people with huge hats wading through the grass! (Am I intelligent due to my imagination, then? According to Einstein. :-) )

  11. They do get the imagination going. I think we need both...knowledge and imagination.

  16. Denise we did cover the apple pie with foil in the last 10 minutes and it seemed to make a difference. So bake at 425F for 15 mins, then 350F for 35-45 mins, wrap with foil in the last 10 minutes.

    1. Happy Autumn Sallie, I like mushrooms to look at and to eat, though I prefer choosing my edibles from the supermarket :)

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
