Thriving in the humidity

When the humidity is as thick as lard, critters with lungs have a hard time breathing. We have to hit the ground running each morning before the mercury leaps.

There are things that enjoy the humidity – mushrooms. We've seen thousands of mushrooms. Red, orange, blue, gold and of course the ones the color of turds.

I saw an interesting one today. At first, I thought it was a dogwood blossom. Upon closer inspection, I realized that it was a mushroom.  It seemed to be thriving.

I'm glad there are things that enjoy the heat and humidity.


  1. Heat and humidity are not my friends. Thanks for the reminder that for some things it is perfect.

  2. HAHA, I like that dogwood mushroom. And yes, the humidity is hanging in NC also...

  3. I'm not one that enjoys the heat and humidity and I do feel a bit like a fungus these days! It's going to be a warm week for the 4th and Jack will be at Scout camp as usual and as usual it's hot and humid! I just try and remember the cold, ice and snow and grin and bear it!

  4. It is nice to know that somethings are thriving in this heat. I don't do so well.

  5. It's been hot and muggy here too and I didn't slept well last night. We don't have A/C and I have to use a fan to cool off. I can't imagine what it's like for people with breathing difficulties.

    Today we celebrate Canada 151 th birthday and the heat wave is coming this way.
    As things are heating up politically, so does the weather.
    Hugs, Julia

  6. It was surprising to see that the pretty blossom is in fact a mushroom. I had to take a second look to see it.

  7. I do not like humidity, not a fan of heat either but when the humidity is high it is worse
