I see a lot of places are not getting their rainfall again. I hope it comes back. The area around you depends on being moist. We are still getting good rains but I am a stone's throw from the coast

I am happy to say that, so far, we have spotted mostly new fungi ( not the ones we saw last year). But, because it's been so dry our luck might not last !
