So Many Mushrooms

One of the few interruptions from working on my quilt was to take a walk in the woods after feeding the animals in the early evening.

I didn’t plan to take any pictures, but overnight, the woods had filled up with mushrooms.  There were so many different kinds I tried, unsuccessfully to take a photo of each type.  I know little about mushrooms, but I do love their sculptural shapes and textures and varying colors.

I’m also fascinated by how quickly they grow, pushing up and aside anything that gets in their way as they pop up from the earth.

This one was about the size of a dinner plate

The most phallic mushroom I saw
