This past weekend we just had the best kind of fall weather with sunshine, blue skies and pleasant temperatures. Sunday we decided to head out for a good walk in the woods. Just in case we would find some mushrooms we brought a bag with us. We did not have very high hopes considering we did not find a lot the last time and also considering there are so many people here around Stockholm that do roam the forest for mushrooms and berries all the time. We drove out to Lida national forest area with C's sister and family.
We actually did not have to look for very long before we found these "trattkantareller" (sorry but I do not know the English name for these).
Turned out it was a really good idea to bring that bag after all. I have actually never found such quantities. I think we picked about 10 liters (about 2.5 gallons) of these in less than two hours.
But we also found some blue berries. Perhaps the very last for the season. I was very surprised to find them at all this late. But I got enough for my breakfast.
Our walk was cut kind of short and did not turn out so long but on the other hand we came home with some great edible treasures.
I saw quite a lot of small rabbits jumping around. I guess some of them are house pets that have escaped and others previous pet rabbits that have on purpose been let out. We all know that rabbits sure know how to multiply.
The girls were very happy to help us pick mushrooms. Here is C with his youngest nice little Ella.
When we came home we had a lot of work to do cleaning the mushrooms we had picked. Iris helped us. I think we spent more time cleaning them than what it had taken us to pick them. Then we spread them out on towel to dry.
