A Mushroom Village

We had a stump cut out and now have a pile of rotting wood shavings.

Obviously, the mushrooms like it there. This is the second batch.

This is the second time they’ve grown and “bloomed here.”

They do spread after they open.

They are so cute too…

like they’re growing in families.

This patch is a little older and much larger.

This makes it easy to see the gills.

The  top of the cap splits from the edge toward the center. 

Need I say more? …..

I do — I think it’s an American parasol mushroom.

No Name Mushrooms

Buffy and I went for a morning walk through the woods at Stone Face.  The late October day was cloudy. No water ran in the creek. No flowers bloomed.

These mushrooms practically lined part of a fallen dead tree.

White shelf mushrooms also grew on the same log.

I thought this configuration had an artistic appearance.

One of these shelf mushrooms had gills on the underside, and the other had pores.  I didn’t find either of these in any of  my six mushroom books.

It didn’t matter to me. I enjoyed them anyway. Besides, they don’t know what they are either.

I come from an artistic family and look at things from an artistic standpoint.
