Surprise in the Woodstove

Nope, no fire faeries this time! This afternoon I was adding wood to the fire when I noticed a miniature forest of mushrooms on the end of this log! These tiny mushrooms were smaller than a pencil eraser!
I was enchanted. Aren't they delightful?
DADDY UPDATE: Dad went to the neurosurgeon for his checkup. Though the bones in his neck have made progress healing, he must wait for a CAT scan and those results before the surgeon will allow Dad to take the brace off. He's allowed to have it off three-four times per week to eat and rest. Please continue to pray for Dad's fractured neck bones to heal. Dad is frustrated and unhappy--please pray that God will give him distracting spots of joy throughout each day.
Thank you so much for all your prayers, love and concern.

Amazing that there is life all around us. Those mushrooms sure were a surprise. A sign that there is moisture in that log. Strong thoughts going out to your Dad.....

They are really lovely, quite captivating!

I love mushrooms - tiny little miracles. Each is different than all the others around it. And in the most unexpected of places, too!

Cute little things - look like faerie chairs or tables. Nice to get some clear pics of them, especially since they were so tiny.

Sending healing thoughts to your Dad. Bodies can be frustrating. I sympathize with him.

It must be a nice moist, warmer day out there. It is colder here and all that snow is still here.

We had some poor times and I don't regreat it as it taught me some lessons about life.

Yes, an enchanted forest, Beth. Funny how persistent life can be.

I hope your dad will get some well deserved relief. Frustration is always hard to bear.
