Shades of Brown with a Touch of Green

In my garden I have a huge Maple tree stump. I am sure that the tree/stump is dead but in-spite of that, there is still so much life there.

Mushrooms are one of the things that are plentiful. There are a few different ones on it. For today I have chosen this beauty to show off. I like how it has a thick dark brown ring and it goes lighter as it reaches the center. At that top some green slime looking stuff seems to ooze out of the stump onto it.

Third time is a charm 20/30

When Traci and I went to Wildwood NJ I took this photograph as we were leaving.  It was supposed to be used as one of my 30 Day Challenge pictures but it never made it to WP.  (still a bit behind in posting).

But it did make it to my IG account

For the past couple of days the news stations predicted that we would get 6-12 inches of snow.  Well needless to say they were incorrect.

Here is a picture from balcony showing the snow drift.
