At my blog The Picture As Janie Sees It I often post my photography I have take or the nature that surrounds me. This year I was lucky to have plenty. Fungus or Shrooms as I like to call them were in abundance. I am amazed at how they can not be seen at one moment then you turn around and there they are. For any of you who have ever hunted Morels you know exactly what I am talking about. For those of you who haven't you are missing a treat. Morels are a safe wild mushroom that grows in abundance in wooded areas in early spring. The perfect time to go hunting.... when a oak leaf is the size of a squirrels ear. Or in early April.
Although I strongly suggest that if you do not know what you are doing.... don't... Many Shrooms are poisonous and without proper identification can be a severe health hazard. Yet still even if you can not partake of this delicacy that nature has, you can still marvel at its beauty and its manner of sneaking up on us when we least expect them. Next time you see a shroom peeking its head out of the grass waiting for that perfect moment to spring itself into existance. Allow it the priviledge of doing just that. And pay attention to when it finally does emerge. you may be surprised by the beauty you discover in a gross little thing we call "fungus".
