I've been looking for morels on the Saanich Peninsula, Vancouver Island,
withought success. What do you know about the timing of their appearance?
I found, what I feel to be a likely spot this evening, but came up empty.
There were a couple of other types of mushroom there, but since morels are
the only ones I "know", I can't tell you what they were.
I haven't found morels on the island yet. I picked morels for years in
Ontario, but haven't been able to get the feel of when to find them here -
the season being more gradual.
