the nursery

I found these little mushrooms sprouting in clumps all over the moss-covered trunk of a fallen tree.


Each mushroom was no larger in diameter than a nickel, but the contrast of their coral hue against the green of the moss was striking. Most of the mushrooms I’ve found around here are a dull beige or white, so discovering these was quite a thrill. I’ll be going out again today in pursuit of further fungus euphoria.

    Amazing color! I found mushrooms today while walking, but they were just white. Ahh, well, they were still cool-looking and I got some decent shots. 🙂 My favorite are the kinds you eat!!
