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.




Dark, growing things.

For some reason I was fascinated by fungus last year but never had the chance to educate myself much about them.


Adult versions of the babies above.



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.
