Little Known Fact A Day October 5… `Shrooms

Fact:  I enjoy pictures of Mushrooms and Toadstools.

I actually paid for one picture, once upon a time when I was waiting tables.  It was a painting at the place where I was waiting tables.  It fascinated me.

When I was a kid, every spring, we went hunting mushrooms.  The woods we hunted in (Who’s Woods These Are I think I know) were behind a school mate’s farm.  Who knew, at the time that morel mushrooms were like to die for and everything.  They are yummy.  and they grow in the same places as May-apples grow.  I always loved having may-apple umbrellas.

I was always good at finding their hiding places (the Morels, may-apples don’t really hide so well).

We have lived in places where the fungus among-us doesn’t grow so well.  But there is almost always  something growing on trees (punk).  The designs are fascinating.  The textures.  The differences in them.

I have been out taking pictures of them for the last couple days.  They don’t grow here for very long, it is never wet enough or the right temperature.  When they do, they take over the yard and I go a little nutsy taking picutres.
