Amanita flavoconia and Russula today. I think the season is commencing!

Haven’t made it to Maine yet but will by the end of the week. Had to stop in the upper peninsula en route to look for morels. Does seem early though my references say summer to fall and it feels like summer here. Maybe a microclimate or global warming?

Ho ho! You are back east!
