  5. Beautiful! These pictures are lovely! I am coming around about shiitake mushrooms. (Spell check thinks they should be called “Shiite” mushrooms, lol!) Anyway, they haven’t always been my favorite but I am beginning to appreciate them more recently. Good to see you posting so much lately, Cara!
