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.


About Velo du Jour

I am a 61 year old mom/wife, former biologist, and presently certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and I love, besides biking (and other things), nature, swimming, drawing, photography, yarn, exploring adoption themes, and putting people at ease. In April 2012, I participated in "30 Days of Biking " on Twitter, sponsored by a group of "joyful cyclists" in Minneapolis during the month of April. I loved tweeting about each day's ride so much I didn't want to stop! "Velo du Jour" is a continuation of recording and sharing my rides post-30 Days of Biking.
