I REALLY HATE THESE ugly mushrooms but my hubby finds them a great photo shoot so before removing them from the old roots of a removed tree, he takes pictures. They only grow when it has been humid and has rained and then they are there overnight in clusters. I might find them interesting if they weren't so Ugly - ha! I found one more my taste (no pun intended) and took the picture about an hour ago.
NOW THIS is a pretty mushroom! It looks like it came right out of a fairy story where little gnomes or elfs just finished lunch sitting at the mushroom table. A place where the tiny toads that live in my yard can take shelter from the rain-ha!
