Tree Fern. India set Daddy right on this one. She's obviously learning something in her plant ID class at ACE. He thought this was moss, but she told him it was tree fern. At closer inspection, she was right. Go India!This is the largest mushroom I have ever seen. The picture really doesn't do it justice, but it was about a foot across and the stalk was about an inch thick.One thing I can honestly say about India is she loves to be in the woods. She is super at home just exploring.Kalib liked the shadows the trees were casting on him.
Tree pose... honoring the magic and wisdom of these ancient ones...Mom wishing Daddy wasn't taking her picture.
On the way home we stopped off at our favorite (everyone but India's) BBQ place. Oinkers. The BBQ there melts in your mouth and the people who work there are all so nice. If you are ever up towards Clayton and you like good BBQ...it's towards Athens on 441 just south of Clayton. Just thinking about it makes me ready to take another drive back up there just for the BBQ...
