Rain. Rain, more rain. I'm sick of it. But it surely has been loved by the fungi growing around here. I decided to take a farm walkabout and see what sort of fungi are visible.
Above, this little oddity is about 1 1/2 inches high jutting out if the forest litter. It looks like a red star flower atop a white stalk. Pretty and weird.
Above....walking among the fern regrow th in the secret garden, I accidentally came across a patch of wood chips with little red dots all over them. Tiny and very red. I wonder what sort of fungus this one is.
Above, I came upon patches of bright yellow dog vomit fungus. So colorful, it's hard to miss. Wow, it just screams at ya. I came across three patches of the stuff growing on decomposing cardboard.
Above.....Mushrooms abound. Big. Small. White. Brown. Robust. Fragile. These are just two photos, but I saw lots of littler mushrooms all around.
Above..... Shelf fungus was easy to find along old rotting logs. I haven't seen this variety before. Most of the shelf fungus is the type that looks like a turkey tail fanned out.
Above...... So what's this stuff? I'm guessing it's a fungus of some sort. I found this growing on my back porch steps.
