My neighbor, Cory (you know him by now), is still renovating the house across the street on the creek. He was cutting some oak and diseased gum trees and piled them up. I went to check on the house as I do most days, and to feed Crip, who has at his advanced age, lived through an exceptionally cold winter, with, I suspect, a rebroken leg. Not to worry - he's doing ok.

I always look at wood piles with a searching eye, and something very pretty - this shelf fungus growing on pieces of oak, stopped me. I've never seen this winey color before. You can see the fruiting bodies just underneath the lip of one left of center, bottom. They were velvet, and the word that zipped through my mind was "matelesse", the quilted looking fabric which is very elegant. Not much use to an old lady in yoga pants and a big t-shirt! Nevertheless, I look at this and see such lush beauty destined to be burned. The wisps of Spanish moss look like embroidery floss. Do you see something, too?
