    I looked today and my woods are still dead. Usually find the first blacks near this stump. Nothing yet.

    Ozzie loves to go with me but I can't get him to find Morels......yet

    Very nice find Kelley. Those look like younger black morels. The ones in your profile pic look like yellow morels. They all taste good congrats to you!

    20200324_121008.jpg Still too cold for Merkels but not too cold for snakes. A Black snake and Copperhead laying together!

    Believe you might have an Eastern Milk or maybe a Red Corn snake there, it has round eyes. Copperheads have slit eyes, and their pattern is slightly different.

    20200326_182852.jpg So we are on the map at my elevation here in Giles county. Tomorrow I plan to go down to the creek level and they should be starting to pop. If it stays warm at night we will have some for the weekend. Found the first Bloodroot today right with the Merkels.

    Wow, nice! I was out last night but wasn't able to find any. Elevation in my woods is probably too high at approximately 2250 ft. here in SW Giles. Will be checking this weekend.
