Heading reluctlantly to my car (and work) this Friday morning, I glanced down and spotted a finned, round object floating above the mulch in a planting bed. Even in the shadows I stopped to photograph it because the 'shroom may not last the day — it's mature, has spread or is spreading its spores, and the hot sun will hit it this afternoon. These things are much prettier than one might expect.
It was, in fact, a surprising find! I noticed the fan design of the mushroom cap and that caused me to stop and photograph it. Only later did I see the details and the colors that were there. — JG
Really beautiful. But which side makes you taller and which side makes you small? Alice? Are you there?
