Sunday 3-29-15 After a cold week there is no need to even look for mushrooms today. Signs of spring did rear their head this week with the Dogwood trees blooming on Wednesday, the Bradford pear trees started blooming on Friday, along with the elm trees starting to get a tinge of green on them. The grass has greened up nicely, but no dandelions. As the old timers always told me that the first sign of spring in when the buzzards show up. They made their first appearance in the sky on Thursday. Truman Lake water surface temp. today is 45 degrees, up only one degree since last Sunday. In my area I always went by April 15th to find mushrooms, it is looking more like that date will hold true again this year. Good Luck Hunting to All!
