Calypso Orchids

Recently, when walking on the mountain, I found some calypso orchids. These are supposed to be a sign that Spring is here, and morels are up. So I went to my little secret morel patch and found that they had indeed popped, almost overnight (there had been none the previous week). 

The photo shows a cluster of six, exactly as they were when I found them.
So I picked some, left some to propagate themselves, and we had a tasty dinner.
Delicious! This is one of very few mushrooms Laurie has any time for.
