King Boletes, Boletus edulis, are beginning to appear

Thea Leonardi went mushroom foraging this week and found a dozen or so King Boletes. Her cat, Mendo, was quite interested in the aromatic mushroom.

 Thea calls Mendo "The Beast." Perhaps he's smiling in approval...

 It is tiring tromping around the woods looking for mushrooms. Time for a rest.

Thanks to Thea for allowing me to share her photos with you here. The rains headed our way should prompt a big bloom of Boletes very soon.
