I had planned on going for a walk to look at wild flowers and hopefully find a morel or two.
I put on my Frogg Toggs and decided to stick a pocket camera inside my pocket and go see what I could find despite the rainfall.
I used my weatherproof Fuji pocket camera and hoped that it was still weatherproof after all of these years.
My Frogg Toggs got muddy but seemed to hold up pretty well, I spent almost 2 hours in the rain and didn't get wet.
However I did get muddy.
I found some False Morels, these were all over on a north facing hillside.
Very nasty mushrooms from what I understand.
I also found strawberry plants that were starting to bloom near the creek.
To my horror, I found a large patch of Garlic Mustard.
I pulled as much as I could, even though this is not in our woods.
So I spent the day hunting for morels and found just one, but also discovered two patches of garlic mustard. As I pulled them I found dutchman breeches under them.
These are awful plants and this forest will more than likely become invaded by this plant.
No animals eat it.
