Above are some Flammunila velupites mushrooms growing out of the cracks on this large Elm tree. These wild Flammulina velupites look a little different than the commercially grown small white Enoki mushrooms many folks are familiar with. This is a late fall and winter mushroom which is gaining some ground as a good medicinal mushroom well worth investigating.

Here is an extremely common mushroom found where ever trees grow in this world and can be harvested most times of the year for medicinal teas or soups. This mushroom which contains PSK is known as Turkey tails and also Yun zhi (Trametes versicolor).

    That first image in particular, the ants-eye view up the Elm, is superb. Images such as these initiate fresh viewpoints, perspectives, ideas. Connections, connectedness.
    I love it.
    Kind wishes, J
