These first two I saw walking in the woods with Jon this afternoon. I love how elegant this one is, the opposite of the mushroom below which looks so inviting.
I found these in the woods yesterday, so feathery and soft.
I found this mushroom a week or so ago. I love how it makes such a cozy space as it popped out of the leaves, like a little cave with an umbrella roof.

The third photo is of Indian Pipes. They look like mushrooms but are actually a flowering plant that has no chlorophyll. I’ve seen them only a few times in our woods, so it’s always a treat when these delicate beauties pop up. Lucky you!
Oh interesting Barbara. And I feel honored to have seen them.
All of these mushrooms are amazing! They really love to pose for your wonderful photos, Maria!
I didn’t realize there are so many varieties.
I’m seeing a lot more this year Fran.
I have always loved mushrooms. Not the taste, but the look of them. I have always imagined them homes for fairies. How magical they are!
They definitley look like someone’s home Maria.
Hi Maria! I was really excited to see the 3rd photo – Indian Ghost Pipe I think. It is used in tinctures for pain relief. Very lucky to see it. It appears and then is gone. Kind of rare these days I think. It is really lovely.
Ah Pat, that sounds familiar now that you say it. I have seen it before. I didn’t know they don’t last long. But then it seems most mushrooms don’t
I cannot believe the variety of mushrooms you’ve been seeing in the woods. It makes me want to learn more about them and why they’ve developed in so many ways!
I feel the same Pam. I’ve never seen so many different types. It makes me want to know more.
