Wouldn’t it be cool if the smurfs actually lived here?

It’s mushroom season here in France and besides falling in love with cepes, I am also in a loving state of wonder for these brightly colored mushrooms which have sprouted up in the middle of the birch tree grove in our front garden.

As I was stooping down to snap these photos with my phone, the guy who is installing the phone and internet connections at the house told me that these particular mushrooms are very poisonous which begs the question:  Why would the smurfs or ‘les stroumphs’ as they are known in France choose to live in such dangerous quarters?

    Maybe it’s for protection from the evil Gargamel, his cat Azrael. Living in a poisonous house could be a good thing…as long as you don’t lick the walls. No?
