Mushrooms, Mushrooms everywhere!

Its odd how things can be right in front of your eyes and yet not get noticed for the longest time.  Lately we are finding mushrooms of all sizes and colors and shapes.  We are looking forward to our September 3rd Mushroom Event here at Meanwhile, Back in Saluda.  For now, take a look at…

Mushrooms, Mushrooms everywhere!

Since we plan a Mushroom class in September, we have watched carefully for mushrooms and we photograph them to help us remember the best locations plus we can learn from the photos.   So many Mushrooms and so little time!  Even in the dry heat recently, we found mushrooms.   To see part of our Mushroom photo…

Skype Photos from Jan 24, 2010 / Westport, New Zealand

Last night, January 24, 2010, Casey / Josh / Mallory / Lucy called via Skype.   I just love Skype.  Casey was able to talk to us for 36 minutes while he was uploading photos and checking e-mails – all with no long distance charge!  What a great invention.  They were back in the town of…

Skype photos from Westport, New Zealand

Casey, Lucy, Josh and Mallory arrived in Westport, New Zealand on January 20th.  They found Internet at the public library and we were able to talk to them via Skype but only for a short time.  The Internet kept shutting off the audio but we could still see them and take photos.  Lucy had gone…

December Snow 2009

On Friday, December 18th, the boys and I were at the Asheville House when suddenly and without much warning, came a Big Snow!  Really Big Snow.  We threw, literally, our things into the car (which was no small event since both Patrick and Egan had to take computers, camera gear and school bags plus clothes)…
