If you are a regular follower of my blog, you know how I enjoy hunting for and taking pictures of fungi and mushrooms during the cold damp months of the year. That is about all I enjoy of that time of the year too. Well you can imagine my surprise seeing this alongside a trail that I frequent from time to time. Just how many times have I passed it by and not noticed? I wonder, as this is variety that lasts all year long.
It is well camouflaged among the decaying wood of of this downed tree, taking on it's color and texture.
I saw these and they looked tasty. But being that the deer have not touched them leaves me to think they are not safe to eat. Someday I really need to get a guide on edible plants of my area.
My life may depend on it someday.
Update on yesterday's Wednesday's Wreck,
it was finally gone when I rode by on my motorcycle yesterday.
As TexWisGirl commented, "Left to die in a Walmart parking lot" what worse fate could happen to anyone or anything? Egads!
