This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Ilex opaca) with Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) cap. Looks like mushroom season is approaching here at my neck of the wood. We trim off a few branches of the Live Oak in our backyard to give the fig tree in its shadow a bit more sunlight, with the hope of more figs this season. I should be able spin a few mushrooms out of these branches. That oak tree is the only decent size thing on our back slope and the main issue of our current family politics. My kids and my niece gang up to pertition for a treehouse to be build, lobbying each family menbers with different tactics. I objected, based on safely reasons. My husband abstained from voting on the issue (a wise political decision). My brother gave full support to what he deems to be "the ultimate childhood dream". He even volunteered his labor, provided that I consent to fully funded the project. Tears were shed, guilt trips given, peaceful protests staged. I finally made concession. Development plans were drawn, revised, down-sized, negociated, and finalized. Construction has been going on in spurs, depending on when my brother has the time. Back to the mushroom, nice little fella, isn't it?
