We're getting our first real snowfall today. Wet, sloppy snow is covering the ground and I figured it would be fun to see how my little wool mushroom is faring in the weather.
My helper and I headed out to the trail to see what we could see.
While not covered in snow, it did look a little shivery with droplets of water all over it.
And what is this? Something has been tugging at it! The veil and part of the cap have been pulled out. Tufts of wool displaced. What's more, a spot in the green "moss" has been displaced too and it looks as if something has burrowed underneath it into the cavity of the tree.
It makes me happy to think of some little wood mouse cozy in the wool beneath the mushroom. I'll keep an eye on it to see if there are any other signs of life in the coming months.
Today I will be cozy in my own wool-walled home. The fire is going, soup is in the pot, and the chores have already been done and I'm looking forward to needling some more mushrooms.
I hope you have a cozy day too.
