Mushrooms


These beautiful mushrooms are growing in the crevice of a huge maple tree situated right inside the main walkway to the Pavilion in the Arboretum area at Bernheim. I featured a photo in a post last Spring of the mushrooms from the front side, but decided to walk around to the back side of the tree to see if any mushrooms were growing there, only to make this discovery. The detail on the mushroom caps is fascinating to me. Only Mother Nature could paint such a perfect looking canvas. The vertical lines are perfection. ENJOY!

  1. I haven't seen many, and that is really strange considering how wet we have been here for the past few weeks.

    These are the kind in fairy tale books! I love the shapes and color.
