Mystery Fungus?? Gall?? What...?
We had a delightful picnic the other day at Watkins Mill State Park, in the deep, cool woods. This has been an amazing spring...if it were like this every year we would be crowded with people wanting to move here!
After we ate, Joseph read and I sketched...I'd put brown ink in the cartridge of my little Carbon pen, and loved it for its ultra fine nib. It let me really zero in on the leaf and the strange, colorful bits with their star-like opening--fungus, gall, insect nest? You tell me!
They reminded me of miniature Earth Star mushrooms...
