egg in the forest

We were walking on the parkway near our house and we saw this other worldly egg.  I didn’t get back down to take a picture of this baby the next day when it was fully “hatched” before someone kicked it over, but I just wanted to share it with you.  By the way, this one is probably poisonous.  But isn’t it neat to look at?

Steve had an exciting time mowing the lawn.  He was luckily looking where he was going, and he found four of these little fellows.  So, we went down to the parkway and we found some more.  We had a beautiful meal of pasta with morel cream sauce.  So good!  Even made better because we saw them at the Farmers Market for 11 dollars for a half pound.  We debated buying them, and now I’m glad we passed!
