Wild Mushrooms & Pretty Flowers.

For the past few mornings, it was raining on and off. There were some mornings we could not go for our early morning walk because of the rain or slight drizzle. When this happens, we are happy to continue with our sleep. One morning it didn't rain and we were happy to go back to our walking at the recreation park. 
It must have been due to the rainy days that caused these wild mushrooms to sprout out from the ground. There was this one big mushroom that looks so like a brain!
I spotted these mushrooms and a few others growing near to our walking path.
A few walkers were also attracted to these mushrooms and stopped to take snap shots of them.
This lone round mushroom was as big as a tennis ball.

One morning my sister saw these 2 cute mushrooms growing in her garden. They look like 2 little humans with their net coats.

2 little dwarfs came to visit and admire a giant sized garden.
On a different morning, I saw these pretty grey mushrooms in my garden.
I found a few of them scattered over the garden.
I also found one tiny beige mushroom under the shade of a dwarf Mexican petunia plant. There is always something interesting to see if only we take the time to be more observant.

  1. Very interesting mushroom varieties Nancy...they are beautiful! I read somewhere that where mushrooms grow, it shows that the ground is rich in microbes and nutrients.

  2. Nancy, these are wonderful photos! The one that looks like a brain is extremely interesting. I have to wonder, many foods are word pictures. The apple core looks like a hear and apples are good for our hearts. Walnuts look like brains and they are good for mental functioning. Really does make me wonder. I have no idea if this variety of mushroom is edible but is curious. Thanks for the very interesting photos.

    1. Thank you, Lynn. Someone mentioned that this is edible but nobody dares to touch the mushrooms. It is safer to leave the mushrooms alone. Lol!

  8. Whenever I see wild mushrooms I feel like eating them but I don't know which ones are edible and which ones are poisonous so I dare not eat them.

    1. Mun, I wouldn't even dare touch them. Someone once told me this mushroom is edible but I wouldn't dare trust him. It is safer to leave them alone.
