Mushroom City

This year has been the year of bugs and moisture.  When we moved here the peninsula we kept hearing talk of the drought we were in.  But it was still raining occasionally and so to us Westerners, we balked.  But now we understand what the natives were talking about:).

We had a beautiful, cool Spring that actually lasted like a Spring on the calendar says it lasts, and really have only had 2 or 3 weeks of hot, hot weather.  Because of all of this pleasantness though, our lawn is like a fairyland of mushrooms.  Here's a shot of one group, with my foot's portrait, to give perspective.

These are small compared to some my friends have posted, but there are scores of these in our yard.  
Kind of makes you want to write a fairy tale about the miniature cities that probably dwell down there:).
