Another Mushroom

 
Posted by Picasa


I'm not sure what this type of mushroom is called but several of them also popped up in my backyard after all the rain we had this past week. It may be a chanterelle or a jackolantern mushroom. I think the color is beautiful. If anyone can identify it for me, I would appreciate it!

I don't know much of anything about toad stools or mushrooms but that some of them are poison.

I spent one day restoring Patty's computer. She clicked on an email she had sent that could not be delivered and was returned. She was curious as to why it wasn't delivered and clicked on the notice. Well, it was a "worm" that locked her computer and wouldn't let her do anything. When I got up the next day, she came out in her PJs and said, "My computer won't come on."

I had to reformat the hard drive and return it to the factory, new, condition. She lost everything on the computer. I feel sorry for her as it takes a lot of time to put her things back on the computer that she had saved on an external hard drive. Beware folks. If you send an email and it comes back, you should not open it.

I have not been able to get around much of late.

At first glance I thought it was a beautiful yellow flower... but it turns out to be an amazing mushroom:)
Thanks for stopping by Lois, have a wonderful day...

Edible mushrooms are delicious but toadstools are toxic.

Oh, thanks for the idea, think we'll have a fresh mushroom omelette tonight.

It does look like a flower. Sorry I don't know much about wild mushrooms, other than I have some strange ones growing around my yard.

It's a nice picture. It's amazing how many types of mushrooms that to pop up randomly.

It's a chanterelle mushroom - I see them all over Tallahassee too! They are just like the ones in the grocery store.

It's beautiful! All fungui are so amazing.

Sorry, I don't know the name, but this is one of the prettier mushrooms I've seen. Probably shouldn't eat it, though. ;-)

Interesting looking fella, but I can't help with identifying it. Sorry.

I think it's technically called a "yellow mushroom!" Just trying to help! Beautiful mix of browns, greens, and yellow!

It is very unusual and quite pretty. I also like it's buttery color.

Lisa Wilson said...

That is a pretty one. I wonder what it is, too.
