Clearing out my phone today I was heartened to see some reminders of summer. Even though this has been a warm December it rains most of the time and the days are short; I drive to work each morning and drive home each night in the dark.
These photos are all from a hike with a friend who knows about wild fungus. I unfortunately lost my notes and can’t remember names, or even which are poisonous.
For some reason I was fascinated by fungus last year but never had the chance to educate myself much about them.
The above mushroom looks poisonous, doesn’t it? But I don’t know.
This one I know is edible. The chipmunks go wild for it and I’ve eaten it myself a few times figuring what doesn’t hurt them can’t hurt me. I don’t know it’s name though.
