Autumn and Winter begin to Mingle


appreciating the mushrooms 
 as i studied them 


clear night skies
inspire frost to grace life


sunlight is revealed as tiny sparkling orbs
when mixed with frost


colors dance before our eyes
good medicine


some trees 
naked
the sunlight chooses them to present, show off and reflect


finding new treasures
Basidioradulum radula, Toothed Crust fungus
like an artful mandala


Plicaturopsis crispa, a Crimped gilled Polyporales
this is the underside, the top looks like
it was growing on dead wood:

  11. Dear Tammie - How beautiful the assorted mushrooms! The leaves fringed with frost are so beautiful. Toothed Crust fungus looks like pale blue woolen glove though I don’t know how many fingers it will warm. Thanks for sharing these hidden beauties.

  13. That first photo of the interiors of the fungi is so fabulous! Honestly, I think more times than not I gasp when I open your blog!

  14. How beautiful your world is, as always. The last two of photos look like creatures growing in the sea floor, not on the dead wood. I went to Osaka yesterday. I saw there was a big fungi ornament displayed at the cosmetic department. It was beautiful red with white dots on it. It captured my eyes and made me think of your mushrooms. Happy day to you!

  23. Fall really is mushroom time isn't it? Do you gather them to eat or simply admire?

    1. Yes, autumn and Spring are the two mushroom seasons for the most part. Especially if we get rain and we sure did. Some years are better than others. There are a few mushrooms i have learned and feel comfortable gathering for food. But mostly I find them fascinating, beautiful and joyful to see.
