A Fluorish of Fungi

It is a phenomenal summer for mushrooms. Warm temperatures and near-daily rain have produced more fungi than I’ve ever seen.

These are not your white fairy-ring-in-the-lawn mushrooms. The woods are filled with a stunning display of colours, shapes and sizes — and each trip among the trees reveals new ones I hadn’t seen earlier.

Spectacular? Indeed!

Just Add Water

Earth-soaking rains

Transform parched soil.

Now in damp stillness

Caps and stems



pop up

Dot the forest duff

Like tiny lights or parasols or stools for tired toads.

Mushroom mania.
