"Ophiocordyceps sinensis (syn. Cordyceps sinensis) is a fungus which infects a caterpillar, uses nutrients out of it to create mycelia and replaces its body with a sclerotium. The fungus then sprouts out of the head of the caterpillar. In Chinese the fungus is known as Dōng chóng xià cǎo (Chinese: 冬虫夏草; literally "winter worm, summer grass")." -Wikepedia

As we awake from a sleepy winter I greet you with this adorkable mushroom greeting card my friend Kari just sent me. Perfect timing as we amp up for the morel season underway. My biggest personal tip for finding morels is to bring a wiener dog with you, which I don't personally have myself. Maybe I could rent one for the day.
