wordless Wednesday


I know this is supposed to be a wordless Wednesday post but I had to share my sense of abundance, verbally.  I went on a short walk in our woods the other day and within 5 minutes had seen a dozen different mushrooms.  By the end of my walk I had taken over a hundred photos of mushrooms.  The ones you see here are a fraction of what I saw, and I'm imagining that I saw only a fraction of what is out there.  Aren't they amazing?

As always, click on the photos to see them a little larger.

when living around such amazing specimens of fungi, you can not but be inspired by them, one way or another !!!
Your photos are amazing, and so are the fungi themselves of course ! I wish I could walk around in your woods with you & see them "for real". Until that day, I'll have to stick with your wonderful photos !! Thanks for taking them & for sharing them here with us !

Awesome! Especcially the pink and blue funghi picture looks like a delicate underwater-scene.

Holy schomoly, girl! I have to admit (as a non-mushroom person) these are pretty incredible. Hard to imagine that you can find so many different ones in your backwoods. We're still surrounded by corn and while there may be an occasional smut outbreak here and there, nothing cool like this :: lynn

Okay, that does it! THIS Saturday I am going to hike the trails at our local Audubon to search for some of these gorgeous mushrooms! Love the little "blueberry" ones! Thanks for sharing! Now I've got to check to see where you live - I've never seen the likes of these in my little corner of the world!

I was sifting thru my Etsy favorite and I found this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/57432353/mushrooms-of-the-world-science-graphic?ref=af_new_item

I kind of feel like it's your destiny to own a shirt of this nature :) Happy rootings!

i can't wait to get out in the woods this weekend and explore amongst my fungi friends

kristin said...

truly amazing...but then again, you've kind of turned me into a fungi fanatic! ;)

on my mushroom explorations at my cabin i kept coming across ones that look like your second to last photo- the mushroom with rough spots on it...any idea?

Tara said...

So many mushrooms. The first photo reminds me of one of your brooches,Lisa.

This is a crazy year for sure for the mushrooms! I've never seen so many different kinds everywhere. Today I was out driving and noticed even more than I had last week --- if I get a chance I'll be out again with my camera tomorrow! They're just so fascinating.

Sonia - well, when you do come to visit you'll have to plan a trip in the fall so we can mushroom hunt together. That sounds wonderful, doesn't it?

Centi - it does have a sort of underwater look about it, doesn't it? Cool observation.

Lynn - I hear corn smut is highly sought after. You could have some extra spending cash rotting away out there.

Jodi - I hope you find a lot of fun things! I'm in Minnesota surrounded by woods so I'm very lucky to be able to walk out my back door and find these. You might be surprised, once you start looking mushrooms seem to pop up everywhere.

Elise - thank you!

R - perfect!

Margie - I bet they'll be excited to see you too.

kristin - I believe those are scaly pholiota. Were yours attached to wood, either to a tree or root? That might be them. They're an interesting mushroom. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pholiota_squarrosa

Tara - that first one reminds me of the inside of a tomato. The shape anyway. :D

tamdoll- they really are fascinating, aren't they?
