Toadstool


I saw this yesterday when we were walking. John asked if it had a caterpillar on top smoking a hookah, no it didnt, just a cap of different colour.
John has been fishing and come home with some fish, I have been carving out new lino cuts but they are not quite finished.
Trouble is that I spend a lot of time bent over which is not terribly good for my back.
I also planted out some shasta daisies a friend had given me, I cant believe I lost a heap last summer it was so dry, but it is still a bit dry and I had to water them in. No rain for a few days but we did have some very welcome sunshine.
here is another Basho Haiku.

Loneliness -
caged cricket dangling
from the wall.
