More Mushrooms

We had lots of rain this past Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning. According to our rain guage we got about 6 inches during the whole thing. We had some real gully washers. As some of you who watch the news may have heard KY was hard hit and did have some deaths from the flooding. Mostly Louisville, Elizabethtown, and Lexington. We didn't get as much as they did.

I guess all this dampness is good mushroom weather. I found these small ones growing in the back yard. These don't even compare with that monster in my last post though. Cute little mushrooms and I found it fascinating that they are all different.

It's hard to get an idea how big they are Rachel, without something to compare them too. :)

That is amazing Rachel..Are they each a different Mushroom species or is it just different stages of the same species...I mean these are important questions!!

About that house: I Agree with you...in fact I didn't like the house that much at all....too cold...too minimal....BUT I did like the Kitchen and the Yard with those wonderful steps everywhere....FABULOUS...

We get a lot fo different species here too and they are very interesting. A few years ago I had a load of beauty bark delivered. I placed it in flower gardens and several different types of mushrooms grew out of it. The most fascinating one had a transparent cap. I tried to get pictures but the caps didn't show up very well.

Your mushroom crop is neat. I hope that our yard dries up a little more with today's sunshine. With all the rain that we have had we should be mowing once again and maybe we will have a beautiful fall this year too.

Interesting. We occassionally get mushrooms in our yard (SE Pennsylvania), but only one type. I've never seen the ones in your yard other than the first picture.

They are really lovely. They remind me of my Gnome book. I loved that book when I was a child, imagining that there were gnomes living under them.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. I have some great blogging friends.

Take care xx

Hi Rachel ~ Loved the huge mushroom
by your shor. I had several a few years ago about the size of a large dinner plate. They make a nice meal with just one of them. Thanks for your comments, glad you like the story
of Fireman Ben. Take care, Merle.

It really is too bad we can't distribute the rain a bit more evenly. We could use an inch or two easily.
Isn't it amazing how quickly mushrooms spring up? One day nothing - the next day Shazam!! there they are.
God's creation is totally amazing.
