My mother saw an article in a morning paper about these structures.

Naturally, we didn’t waste anytime going there. That was the first of May, 2004. They were in New Harmony, a river town in Indiana.

Somebody had quite an imagination and a lot of patience. Of course I don’t know how many people were involved in their construction.

Where did all the sticks and vines come from? The structures were obviously tall and made completely from natural materials.

I could just see the fairies coming out at night to play.

I hadn’t been able to identify them either. Then I found their picture in a small book “Mushrooms and Other Fungi of Land Between the Lakes”

Microstoma flocossa.

They grow on partially buried  sticks and twigs of oak trees. The small cups (to .8 centimeters) produce the spores.
