well, mushrooms are coming up again...

well, look what I found in the parking lot of one of the local shopping centers... I have absolutely no idea what kind of mushroom this is, but it's kind of fun. And there's plenty more coming up, thanks to the recent rain... I like the woody, textured look of these. I picked the big one, as it appeared to be pretty much dried out already, and I'm going to see if I can dry it for a floral arrangement. Some you can, some you can't, but the only way to find out is to try...
tonight, I have to get the batteries charged on the old digital camera, as the stapeliad will be blooming tomorrow or the day after. Or it should be, I can't imaging that bud balloning up much bigger...
No real news today, It was a beautiful day to drive, got to the 70's today, which is so unusual in Texas, you started seeing long sleeves! We're acclimatized to 90 and above here...
later folks.


  1. Those are not very attractive fungi. Not that I've seen many attractive fungi. I'm just saying...

  2. Well, I like gnarly, gothic looking things, so I kind of like them... They're more unusual than pretty though.

  3. Love your mushroom pictures! I get a real kick out of seeing them show up in my garden.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hey, I am so jealous! Our high temp and our humidity matched today. Both 90!

  5. P.S. Cool freaky mushroom pics! LOVE the shrooms!!!
