Pretty Little Mushrooms

Posted in nature with tags , , , , on June 18, 2011 by darcyarts

This morning I will amuse myself by posting more photographs of things I find interesting.

I feel tormented by some olderly annoyance like bursitis but it will only slow me down. It will not put much of a dent in my need to be active.

Mushrooms are one of my favorite things. I like to eat them, see them, draw them and make soft sculpture based on them.

My dear Frank Miller alerted me to this massive lot of  fungi. The two mushrooms here, growing from a connected base reminds me of our love. Aw. XOXO

“A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus. They are not plants,” says wiki.

Mushroom Nibblers

Who is nibbling the mushrooms? Is this why the squirrels behave so strangely some times?

I noticed the first fat head this weekend. A white dome. This morning there were half a dozen.

I like mushrooms. I think they are attractive and a bit mysterious. I should buy a book of  mushrooms and demystify them a bit.

Mushroom lore is pretty interesting and then there is the possibility that some may give you a glimpse into the nature of the world and some may kill you.

I have never seen these round spikey type of fungi in our yard before. They are a very pale green, hard to see in this picture.

It looks as though holes were drilled in the spikey domes, Birds?

These pale green mushrooms are growing in a thicket of fallen pine needles.

They know what they like.

It looks like these are hollow inside.

I am fascinated by vegetation and I could happily wander in a cool Redwood forest or a eucalyptus grove and not want for a thing.

I am a Californio chil’.

Terence McKenna’s mushroom theories are fascinating.

Check out the Terence McKenna quotes at GoodReads.

“Only psychos and shamans create their own reality,”  said Terence McKenna.
