I love mushrooms. I love to eat them, and I love to take pictures of them. :)

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about them to identify them growing in the wild, and I'm totally paranoid that I would make a mistake identifying one and poison myself, so the only ones I eat come from the store.

I'm not sure what these are, but I was really pleased with this photo:


Here are some others that I saw on a walk today at Fraser Beach. I had never seen any like them before:

I have tentatively identified these as "coprinus comatus" mushrooms. There is more information about them here and here.

Vineyard Tour - Le Cep D'Argent

Hanu and I took a tour of a local winery, Vignoble le Cep d’Argent in Magog, Qc.

We took a tour of the facilities which concluded with samples of several of the wines produced by the vineyard. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour (which was very informative). Our guide (who was quite a good photographer in her own right) was very friendly, and the wines were excellent. For more information, be sure to check out the vineyard's website, here.
