Six years now, six years, okay with a few long breaks here and there, it’s time to look back at **my first post as EOredux**. Now, for those few of you who go back before my Redux moniker, you know I actually started blogging a half-year or more BEFORE that, simply and plainly as Earth Ocean Sky. The intent was to photograph those three things. Little did I know the blog would evolve, like Obama and Hillary evolved over their stances on gay marriage and the Confederate flag. ANYWAY, I’ve evolved too, at least I think I have, broadened my fan base from three people to hundreds a day (not thousands or millions like Drudge) but I’ll take 600-700 hits a day. For a nobody, that’s pretty decent.
My recollection of the Original Original Original commenters in the EOS sans Redux days were Betty, Brit, and Earth Image. I don’t believe Catherine came aboard until Redux.
So here it is, in all it’s fungi delight, Post Number one, from September 29, 2010! Note, there were no comments. I wasn’t exactly loquacious in this post either. Sheesh.
***ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AND COMMENT FROM SOUND BEACHER TODAY: Scroll to end.****
With so much rain, my yard is full of mushrooms. Beautiful conical white ones. Tall umbrella types. Low white flower shaped ones. I grew up near the Mushroom Capital of the World, Kennett Square, PA but I can’t tell you what is what here.
SoundBeacher emailed me this afternoon with this comment and photos: Last sentence: Sage advice!
Ok, saw your post! (it reminded me I had these photos) I don’t remember when I started tagging along, but I think it was before the Redux. When we went hiking in Devil’s Den last month, I saw a lot of mushrooms and took pics because they looked so different and so pretty! Are they a mushroom or a toadstool?? Maybe Martha needs some additional types to ID with her kids, so here is my collection, or is that too boring? Never eat a mushroom you can’t identify! –SB
It’s a Toad Stool
Looks like a fairy house setting
That rock is not in the way
Lots of texture on this ‘shroom
Love that orange color
