Wild 'shrooms

Last December, Element and I went mushroom hunting on the 60-acre property surrounding his home in Nevada City.  My thoughts wander back to this day occasionally and I can't help but relish the memory of the moment when I put blewit mushrooms into my mouth for the first time (they taste like heaven).  They have a distinct bluish-lavender color on the cap and gills and smell like a fruity lilac.
