Is it a sign from above?

Monday, November 7, 2005

Brazil resident Donna Baysinger found this morel mushroom in her yard last week. This is unsual considering morels typically fruit for only a few weeks in spring and the prime morel hunting season is early May. Baysinger, who will mark her fourth year as a cancer survivor next month, interprets the out-of-season mushroom as a sign-- her late brother Ralph Drake, who recently succumbed to cancer, was an avid mushroom hunter and morel enthusiast. Baysinger said she plans to give the morel to her late brother, who is interred at Summit Lawn Cemetery.
