Royalty has been spotted on the Mendonoma Coast - yes, The Prince, Agaricus augustus has appeared

Rick and I saw the first one a few days ago in the same spot alongside our road where we found them last year. Yesterday afternoon the first button was joined by a second one. And this morning a third one was just peeking up through the redwood duff. The Prince, an edible mushroom, has made its first appearance of the year.

We'll let these mushrooms grow a bit before picking them for our dinner. Agaricus augustus grows in many parts of the world and is known for its almond aroma.

May is a beautiful time for coastal gardens. Hybrid rhododendrons and azaleas thrive here. Here is a peek at a portion of my garden in bloom. The bees are loving the blossoms and so am I!
