Black Trumpets

14 Sep

These mushrooms would be easy to see if your ankles had eyes. I walked through areas like this one for several decades never stopping & stooping low enough to spot them. Here are a few on the table for a closer view.

Speaking of spots the below photo is going out to all you polka dot fans out there, these ones are not so hard to see, you see.

Fall is forest fungi time

8 Oct

Quick post on a few of the most interesting (to me) wild mushrooms I gathered today in my neck of woods near Moncton NB. Busy foraging these days so not much identification details to pass along, I’m basically just showing off my good fortune by laying these natural wonders out for you to see in a timely fashion with their names listed below. You will need to enlarge to get a slightly better look at the individual mushrooms in this not so great photo. The wild mushrooms available in the Fall can vary greatly from day to day so next week could feature 12 different quality edible mushrooms quite easily. Enjoy your Fall foraging but be careful out there, a lot of larger creatures are on the move and some of them have arms 🙂
