After the Rain

Not long after my morning post of yesterday, the rain stopped. It didn’t just taper off, it was more like somebody turned off the faucet. The silence was almost deafening after the constant drumming sound we had become used to. The sun played hide-and-seek with the clouds for awhile, and the dogs and I went outside to walk around the yard and woods. Come with me and see what we found!

And a very strange mushroom. We’re going to have to look this one up! It only lasted a few hours so I’m glad I found it when I did.

I did some research on the web and think the turtle is a Painted Turtle. If someone knows otherwise, please let me know! I’d love to identify him/her correctly! I have photos of the top of the shell as well if you need to see them.

Stumbled upon this… thought I’d add my 2 cents.
The strange smelly fungus is Devil’s Tounge if I remember correctly…
