Thursday 16 October 2014. Mushrooms Before a Break

Stopped ever so briefly this morning to check on the mushrooms (Amanita muscaria) before going out of town for a few days.

Some definitely were on the way out. 20141019-230549.jpg
Some were at the peak of maturity, presumably dispersing the spores that would give rise to future mushroom appearances.

Still there were some new ones, brightly colored and spherical,

even some tucked among the older ones.

The mushrooms still were pretty numerous

and some individuals were especially handsome.

Hope to follow their path and appreciate them as long as they’re here.
