Pinkish ladies

Rain keeps on falling down. The widespread news has gained much attention from the communities. The mushrooms left home at dawn. They seem to get completely soaked through with sweat, or with rain. I just cannot tell, but I know they are certainly more excited than me.

I was half awakened at three-thirty in the morning to find out heavy rain has started spreading the news. At four-thirty, it still carried on and was almost done at five-thirty. I left home at six-forty five and am astonished to see these lady mushrooms wearing pinkish make-up in the dim forest. They look very attractive even without the hottest bag on the market and never cover their heads with the hats of Queen Elizabeth.

Every one of them keeps me smiling; and it is this smiling curve that sets everything straight.

Something tells me I'd be quite at home with this crowd- who must enjoy standing around in the rain..think I like that shade of pink too (grin).
We're finally beginning to get some rain here! Well I do hope you enjoy your day and the weekend that's around the corner:)

were you camping under the stars by yourself?

I don't suppose since you were so attached to your pink ladies that you cooked them for breakfast.

I must post the Australian knob mushroom for you. This Sunday ok?

If I keep writing one mushroom a day, when am I going to run short of mushroom?

The mushrooms are early risers and all made up ready for their first visitors of the day.

Those pink mushrooms are pretty. I think I have never seen a pink mushroom before. (soon, I will present a red and white mushroom that is quite well-known here :-)

So true that a smiling curve sets everything straight... Loved the pics, they were beautiful...

They are blushing because they are flirting with you :) Very unique indeed.

"They look very attractive even without the hottest bag on the market and never cover their heads with the hats of Queen Elizabeth." I am so jealous. They look gorgeous without trying. While I need the hottest bag and Queen Elizabeth's hat to get attention. wink

Harumi said...
