Finding heart in the strangest place

A few days ago, as I was walking down the driveway to get the newspaper, I noticed something white which was at the end of the driveway, just a foot or two into the lawn.

It turned out to be this.


I know the end is in sight for our great big (well, big for Denver--we don't see mushrooms in our yard very often) heart-shaped mushroom, as the weather has turned and we are expecting close to 90 and plenty of sun today.

It has been my daily pleasure to visit the mushroom and take a photo or two each morning. This is my favorite shot.

What an inspiration! Now THAT is something I've never seen here in the woods in the Land of Mushrooms...a heart-shaped mushroom. A good omen for the day, for certain! xo, O

I LOVE finding hearts and would probably faint from excitement if I saw this in a yard.

Wow.

Such it is. I found a perfectly heart-shaped rock the other day. Mayhaps the mother is trying to tell us something?? Take care, Rick!

OMG, a heart-shaped mushroom! I never would have believed it had you not photographed it. So cool.
