We are in summer, it's hot.
Rains are warm. Mushrooms grow. In the river they say, fish is caught well.
A company of gardeners decided to walk into the woods and the river. I was also invited. The stroll wasn't far of the gardens, 5-7 km.
We left early and were on the river before noon. The day was great, not very hot, with light clouds, and wasn't rain forecast.
The river is not wide but has strong flowing and some places of whirlpools, the water was of tea color due to turf.
Fishermen began catching fish and I went to look at the river and to pick up mushrooms.A dry swamp overgrown with young pine trees was near the river bank. Everywhere in the forest large granite boulders covered with moss could be found. This is a reminder of a glacier passed here many centuries ago.
I went on, the forest was clear transparent resinous of pines. Reddish-brown pine trunks seemed theatrical scenery in the sunshine. Nature has its own unique theater.
I climbed the hill and have seen low blueberries bushes growing between pines. Blueberry was sweet and juicy. To pick up berries it's necessary to bend, oh!
Between pines in the moss under dry branches, fallen leaves mushrooms had grown. There were chanterelles. They are considered as the most environmentally friendly mushrooms. Let's look closely: how many chanterelles have been there, they hid but were found and put in the basket.
At my summer cottage I cooked soup with chanterelles, potatoes and carrots and will soon cook a blueberry pie. What a wonderful summer!
