Thursday’s Thoughts: Thinking In Three’s

June 17, 2010

No deep thoughts today. My brain is too tired, ha! So here’s an easy one… thinking in three’s. I mean, if pictures are worth a thousand words, then there’s some serious thinking going on here, right?

This trio of bright orange fungus starting to grow on a rotten tree limb is likely Sulfur Shelf (Laetiporus sulphureus), also known as “Chicken of the Woods” because it is an edible mushroom that some people think tastes like chicken. (Just once, I’d like to hear someone say, “You know, that tastes like beef.” Or even pork. Just something besides chicken!)

This threesome is our older peacock with two of the peahens.

A trio of red roosters… they no longer reside here.  And we still have too many roosters!

These three trees are in our woods. This is an older picture taken back on a beautiful winter day in December of 2009.

These blooms, however, are on the plant right now. It’s a big Hosta ‘Blue Angel’.

And finally, 3 blooms on a Chinese Sweetshrub.

Alas, that is not a tree we have growing here.  I took this picture when we were at a local nursery buying vegetable plants.

That’s it for today!  My brain is thinking more along the lines of Tired Thursday than Thinking Thursday, or Thursday’s Thoughts, or whatever.  So we have reached the conclusion of today’s post…
