Look what the shovel dragged in...awhile back, Kim had a post about the treasures we discover underground while gardening. With all the bulb holes I've been digging, there's buried treasure here, too. First dicovery-rocks! Lots of rocks were unearthed in my first planting of 165 bulbs...two of these benches were covered, and I'm glad to have them to use elsewhere.Found a couple of these worms, too...likely some sort of moth or butterfly larvae.Then there are these weird little rock-looking things, half in and half out of the ground. Not rocks, though.......cut one open, it appears to be a fungus of some sort. It actually smelt like an edible mushroom, but no way is scent good enough for an ID!These two items were not found today, but they're the most interesting things I've unearthed to date. The doll was found in northern Indiana at my mom's place, and the button was discovered up here a few years ago.Being ceramic, I was shocked to see that she was unbroken... ....from the back, you can tell she's been underground. Rather detailed, eh? I have no idea how old this is...never seen anything like it before. We used to find fossils and arrowheads at my mom's too, but so far no Native American artifacts up here. This kind of surprises me, especially living on a river like this. Guess they never set up camp here.
This button is very pretty, and metal (maybe brass)...I wish I'd found a couple more so I could actually use them.
So that's all the buried treasure I've discovered....so far.
