At this time of year, we always go mushrooming. Weather works in our favour so we're picking them, drying, freezing and of course eating :)
We have parasol mushrooms growing in our garden, so there're always some to pick.
There are more other species we pick, for example, porcini, or bay boletes.
When my mom goes mushrooming, she always returns with hundreds of mushrooms :)
We also have some oyster mushrooms growing on a stump.
Autumn is almost here...
Black cherry (prunus serotonina), picked for a liqueur which is my favourite :)
Mammoth Grey sunflower is probably too late variety for my region and I'm afraid seeds won't mature before first frosts, but we'll see, maybe autumn will be warm and sunny, who knows?
Chrysantemums and asters are flowering so it means summer has ended.
Late marigolds are also in full bloom.
And autumn-colored dahlias :)
