After the Rain

A few of these mushrooms popped up in my backyard after all the rain we've had this week.

Yep, this has been excellent weather for growing mushrooms without trying. It was sprinkling at 5:50 this morning when I was taking the oldest medium kid to the bust stop...at least we did get some sunshine yesterday...

Here, in no. Mich., we haven't had rain in over three weeks. There are mushrooms appearing everywhere. All kinds of different colors and shapes. I always assumed it was a moisture thing, must be seasonal as well.

Beautiful mushroom but I don't think I'd rush to eat it...you never know!

JM said...

Cool! :-) Still too dry here for mushrooms.

You must be having a ton of rain. We need it up here. Send it please. are those good or bad mushrooms? MB

We get these really odd ones in my yard. They look like moon mushrooms with big craters!

Hilda said...

I haven't seen mushrooms pop up in our yard since I was a kid. Now you've got me wondering why…

Great mushroom shot! You must have laid down in the grass!

We've got mushrooms all over, too, and what I find interesting is there are so many different kinds. I guess it's due to the heat and humidity, but it seems there are more this year than in previous years...

Lois, a friend mine (Coca) sent me this:http://cocapitspot.blogspot.com/ now you try it. MB

Lois said...

Thanks MB! I will.

Like an umbrella for the ants. Did you eat it?

Looks like a Portabello...but I'd be too afraid to try it, might be magic mushroom that will transport you to another dimension...or the hospital.

Cool, but I think it is not to eat!

Lois said...

No James I didn't eat it! I would be too afraid to eat a mushroom from my yard.

Beautiful picture, Lois. I can picture yard fairies using it for an umbrella, or maybe sitting around it sharing tea?
