The morning yawn

Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn. ~Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You

Just as the lighter mornings are helping to get me out of bed, the clocks spring forward this coming weekend. DOH..

Mushroom Yawning in the forest

I thought that it was only teenagers who found it hard to get out of bed!


The French word to awaken is réveiller

The French word to yawn is bailler...with or without a circumflex?

Etymology for the word yawn.

I know my standard response to your pics seems to be 'that is a fantastic photo' but honestly, they all are and this one in particular. You could probably get an award in a nature magazine with that one.

thanks for the reminder about the clocks. I once went two days without realising that my time was an hour out from everyone else.

Well thank you French Fancy, it looked really weird like a great big mouth!..I saw so many mushrooms last year it was incredible. Yes this one looked sleepy.

According to my French fungi books I think that fungi is either a Russule Poupre et Noir OR Russule Sardoine, neither of which are edible (though not mortel). Although I could be entirely wrong. Fab photo:)

I love this photo!! It's incredible the things you find in your forest to photograph. If I knew that mouths didn't just fall off people, I'd actually believe this was one. ;)

No not just teenagers, 35 year old women as well!!!

The photo is so cute. I love th idea of spring being the years yawn before waking up properly. I know how it feels.
