The first Agaricus augustus, Prince mushrooms, have appeared.

It's been a strange mushroom year. Hedgehogs were nearly nonexistent this winter. But the first Prince mushrooms have bloomed. Catherine Miller was the lucky forager.

Beautiful sunny weather today after all the rain, though fog has covered the Pacific Ocean. Mushrooms foragers like Catherine and me will keep our eyes open to see what edibles might appear.

Thanks to Catherine for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
