Rural Quitman County December 2009

What on earth? Anyone familiar with this kind of a growth? It is on a big oak tree, and is firm, but not hard to the touch. It almost looks like what we call a coral mushroom at home, but is too solid for that.















We took a walk along the peanut field when Amy and Dan were visiting this week.

The brick house on the left is my parents, the cypress sided house is ours. My brother-in-law and sister came down from Alaska in 2005 to help us build both houses. The neighbors were amazed at how fast they went up....to us, it seemed agonizingly slow at times. We were able to build both houses in 4 months with a pretty strange crew though, thanks to Scott's great supervision of an oddball crew. We all learned a lot!
