This lovely gallery of mushrooms is just a small sample of what’s in my yard. There are some even more exotic ones around my neighborhood and I swear I saw something resembling a portobello at work.
It’s all courtesy of the “monsoon September” that we had. I counted almost 14″ of rain at my house, although the official rainfall total at our airport was about half that. I will bet that they don’t have nearly the good variety of mushrooms that I do either!
After another 2.75″ on October 2, these sprang up.
One looks suspiciously like a death cap–I am not testing things out!
What beautiful mushrooms! You’ve got earthstars and puffballs, two of my favorites. Keep your eyes open for stinkhorns. I’ve only seen them here one year, and they don’t stick around long. Fungi are just magnificent works of nature.
We have had stinkhorns–not here, but where I work. Very lovely. Thanks for sharing.
14″ was the average total annual rainfall for my former neighborhood in town.
