Hello Linda:Now this is incredible. A living still life!
Hi Lance and Jane, thanks, I love mushrooms, they aree so sculptural and transient, transient art.
Incredible! That is one cool mushroom!
I have these in my yard too. They are growing from decaying tree roots left behind from trees lost from Katrina. Although we'd had the stumps ground, many roots remain and these fungus (fungi?)continue to visit. We get other interesting kinds too. I should take more pictures like you do!
Hi Ronna, thanks, if only I could make one of these in clay. I will have to try.Hi Barbara, thanks, yes do take some photos would love to see your mushrooms. I couldn't believe all the tiny critters walking around in this one.
Linda, that's a major mushroom form!! I will tell you a funny story. The water well man came last year, on two separate days. The first day I noticed him looking at my ANCIENT mushroom that is growing on an old stump. This mushroom has been there since I moved into the house about nine years ago.Anyhow he did his work and left. The next day I saw him looking at it again, so I went out to chat, "Oh" he said. "You like the mushroom?.... I was gunna take if home with me, I collect old mushrooms." (disappointed face!) HE WAS NOT KIDDING!! xx HUGS Lorraine xx
Hi Lorraine, thanks, I never knew mushrooms lasted that long I though they all deteriorated. He wanted to take your mushroom and he collects them - never heard of that either. Ha. thanks for the info; I learn something every day.
The first shot has a woodland creature wedding arrangement look to it. ~Mary

Hi Mary, thanks, you know you are right a nice tight bouquet of tiny flowers.Hi Michele, thanks, you should see it today it's completely melted down to nothing, all black.Hi Judy, thanks, yes this is a jazzin one for sure.Hi Victoria, thanks, isn't it a beauty, thank goodness I got the photos its gone now, but another one is coming up.
How did I miss this? A mushroom bloom? I've never seen one. It's beautiful and they look like honey caps, which are edible, but who would want to? Too cool to eat!
Hi Teresa, thanks, I called it a mushroom bloom because that's what it looks like to me, like a compact bouquet of mushroom flowers, sadly it is now gone and completely black, but a very small one is coming up on the other side, cute but not so wonderful as this one.
I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
