And they grow in my courtyard. Take a look:
It turns out that these are fly Amanitae, which = psychoactive and potentially poisonous. So, probably won’t be eating those. However, my Sweetie and I noticed a load of other mushrooms a-sprouting around the yard, not all of them spotty. What’s more, last weekend, I saw our neighbor and his main squeeze trolling the grass like truffle pigs and snapping up toadies left and right.
If that’s not living Small, I don’t know what is. Foraging in the backyard for foodstuffs? Totally fly! Any recommendations for ID’ing these funky fungi?

Don’t miss the first summer edition of Urban Craft Uprising, August 1 & 2, at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. Me love this huge, huge, huge indie craft show and workshop extravaganza. Admission is FREE, so you’ve got nothing to lose.
See you there, craftastic people.

Cupcakes get the royale treatment at Cupcake Royale, Seattle’s small biz cuppycake and coffee hotspot, set to open a new Capitol Hill location — TOMORROW. I am just so excited I could eat my hat, and then a dozen of their Lemon Drop cuppies, too.
Check them out at 1111 E. Pike. They start serving at 6 a.m. (Too early for cupcakes? Perish the thought.)
