The Lush Life

After reading the title I realized there are many takes on the word lush and fortunately that type of lush living is behind me. I'm referring to the lushness that is brought on with days of equal sun and rain. The carpet of soft green grass under my feet feels so rejuvenating as I practice earthing. Mother nature is showing off  her underground wonders and providing a bounty for all of her creatures. In gratitude I take it all in and wish for the rest of November to be as luscious.

 The persimmons are ripe for the picking and this guy doesn't mind helping himself to the neighbors tree. Sometimes the branch that hangs into my yard has enough persimmons to make muffins and pudding. The birds have been pecking at the fruit lately and I find half eaten fruit on the ground going to waste.

A Wee bit of Mycology (because I'm a fungi)

Agaricus  Compestris also known as common field mushroom in it's blush stage.

 A few days passage and sun darken the gills and hardens the mushroom.

Another variety of field mushroom, more a button type. The mushrooms photographed are from my own backyard but I do not pick them just in case. 

What's blooming to the surface in your November?


  1. Nature Showing Off is always Awe Inspiring isn't it? This is the time of year here in the Desert that finally everything gets a rest from the most inhospitable temperatures and it's more temperate. I spend so much time outdoors in Oct-Nov that it's something I eagerly look forward to after a long fiercely Hot Summer in the Desert. Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  2. What a cute picture of that little fellow eating the persimmons. How nice that you have them right at hand in your back yard. You'll have to make some persimmon goodies for Christmas. Your pictures are fantastic today, Holly - isn't nature amazing?

    love, ~Sheri

  3. I love your photos! So beautiful! We are having a warm/cool November. Lots of yard clean up. The grass is luscious, but all the rest of the plants are dying off. There isn't alot of food on the trees for the animals, so I don't know if we are going to get a lot of snow this year. Hugs!

  4. I much prefer your current lushness... There are few things more wondrous and perfect than the image of Nature doing her thing, and a soul appreciation her work! ❤️
