few flowers grace our world
as we enter the fungi season
(so glad there is always something to enjoy)
these are tiny fruiting puffballs
found at the base of my mountain ash tree
photographed on a smoky day
giving them an even richer color
I find each one to be a work of art
a small treasure to behold
Then one morning
I woke to find a squirrel had eaten them all!
That is the task to enjoy the mushrooms before someone eats them.
Most puffballs are edible for us and the deer and the squirrels
who knows who else.
