Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop .

Brody wasn’t exactly willing to participate.

Rosie is trying to choose which of the 3 tunnels to run through.

Sammy is all tuckered out from being with me 24/7.


And look what I found right out my front door-Morel mushrooms. I rarely spend time outside, but I was out there with my mom and sister waiting for my niece to stop by with her 2 kids ( The Great One and her sister). I spotted these and thought they looked like morels so I got my hubby and he looked them up in his mushroom book. After my company left ( we stayed outside and kept apart), I watched 2 youtube videos to be sure they weren’t the false ones which are poisonous, but these were the real thing- and very tasty. We love mushrooms and have shitake and hen of the woods ones started in oak logs that we hope to harvest this year. Have you ever found morels? Tasted them?



  1. That’s a nice variety of selfies, you cuties.

    Mom Ellen, I would be so afraid to eat wild mushrooms! It sounds like you know how to identify them, though. 🙂

    1. Thank you. 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day to you too! I was afraid which is why I checked some videos.

  2. Wow, how cool that you have mushrooms outside! We don’t get them here, and if they do show up, they are toadstools, which are poisonous.

  3. Morels! How cool is that! We have them in our yard sometimes, too…and there are hunters in our county, they hunt for that delicacy!

    Happy Mother’s Day!!

    And the selfies are sweet! Glad you got to have a nice (distanced) visit:)

    1. That is great that you have them in your yard too. Happy Mother’s Day to you too! XO

  4. My goodness…look what you have there! A bundle of kitties willing to take selfies. Wish I was there nesting among them! Happy Mom’s Day!!!XXOO

  5. Those selfies are so cute! Dang, those are weird looking mushrooms. Happy Mother’s Day to your very special Kitty Mom from all of us!

  6. We would be afraid to eat those mushrooms. We hope they are tasty. Happy Mother’s Day to your Mom!!!

  8. Wow! You have morels right there in front of you! Wow! Have a great Mother’s Day Ms. Ellen!

  9. Happy Mother’s day to you also. Those kitties sure have a great Mom. Have a good day.

  10. Oh Brody, you are not supposed to blow a raspberry for your selfie!
    You are lucky to get those mushrooms growing by your front door. We get field mushrooms growing here, but I have to pick them before the horses eat them.

  11. I love mushrooms, but never had morels. Such a cute photo of Brody, even if he didn’t want his photo taken:) Great looking tunnels and the photo of Sammy is so cute. Have a Happy Mother’s Day Ellen and enjoy your day with the sweet furbabies.

  12. Brody is adorable with raspberry out 🙂
    I’m not sure if I’ve eaten morels before but I do love mushrooms!

  13. Happy Mother’s Day! Mother Nature must have decided to gift you with morels for Mom’s Day – they are pretty special mushrooms I believe. Lucky you! Love the photos – even Brody (hahaha).

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

  14. Glad you did all that checking first. We have never had mushrooms, Dad doesn’t like them at all, but Mom does. We found two itty bitty mushrooms growing out of a crack in our deck – how does that happen?

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    1. Those I wouldn’t eat. The wind blow spores and that is how they spread. Happy Mother’s Day!

  15. Happy Mother’s Day to a wonderful cat mother!

    You may have my share of the mushrooms, they are not my favorites.

  16. Brody, you were very cute today but it’s rather rude to give your mom a raspberry like that.

  17. Brody, I like that selfie.
    I took a mushroom biology class once. The teacher said “if you can’t identify it, don’t eat it”. Good that you double-checked your mushroom.

  18. Cute Mother’s Day Post. Happy Mother’s Day my friend.
    Hope I start getting your posts again.

  19. Nice selfies! Even Brodie’s! And what a find…people pay lots of $$ for those morel mushrooms. Though we prefer catnip.

  20. How fun to find morels, we love them! Brody is a funny boy. I understand how Sammy’s feeling 🙂

  21. Ellen,

    Maybe Brody wasn’t giving a raspberry but trying to lick the camera and wanted to give you and the rest of us kiss, do you think? We don’t care for the taste of mushrooms but more importantly is we both have mild allergies to them, so we stay clear of them. Do be extra careful when eating wild mushrooms. There are some real horror stories of people accidentally poisoning themselves. Take care and be well, my friend! xx

  22. Cute selfies, even if the cat models weren’t all in the mood!
    We found morels in our yard last year, but none this year. Hopefully they’ll reappear in 2021.

  23. So cute what your kitty looked like in that photo.
    We rarely see mushrooms or toadstools of any kind around here. You have a fun find in that morel one 🙂

  24. You must be exhausted, Rosie…MOL…We loved all three Selfies and the Morel Selfie too. Never have seen such a champ…MOL…We hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day😺More Clean Pawkisses. Stay Safe Healty and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞

  25. Brody, we think your selfie is absolute purrfection! Rosie, picking a tunnel is never an easy feat for the kitties around here either. My parents’ kitties have that same large red and gold tunnel, and I just learned this weekend that they actually enjoy when I join them in it. Sammy, we hope you get some well-deserved rest! As for mushrooms, I’m admittedly not a big fan. I think it’s the texture. Mushroom texture always gets me. Purrs!

  26. Brody, we think you look adorable. Hope your mom had a great Mother’s Day. So nice that your mom could see family. Mom has never seen these mushrooms growing anywhere. Very cool. Thanks so much for hopping today. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
