First off I found the first patch of Cortinarius semisanguineus this year. These are one of the shrooms that dyers always look for. I think they must bloom later in the year, (if that is what mushrooms do ?), anyhow I was happy to see them.
As we walked back down the trail I spotted one of my handmade hats hanging on a branch !
To be honest I had not noticed it was lost, but was very pleased to see it !
Unfortunately I think it must have had a tangle with a forest denizen.
It will never be quite the same again !!
If hats could talk .....
