Hello Nature-led friends!

Let’s see if I can get this posted before I lose power! We are currently under a winter storm advisory with wind and snow.

My family (including myself) currently have the flu but are slowly recovering. Therefore, I’m extending the deadline for the Fungi/Mushroom Photo submissions.

New due date: Sunday December 4th!

Pictures to be posted the following day on Monday December 5th.

Thank you!

    1. Sorry m’dear – I dutifully went out into the cold to see the two mushrooms I know around here, but all I found was hashed over mud. Obviously some passers by did not like what they saw, and cleared the view by stomping these mushrooms to pulp.
      The idea behind my (projected) picture was that the little stretch of green where these two mushrooms grew, is perfectly man made. It is a area in the village where new houses are built, new by-ways, foot paths etc. Prior to this “development” the land was used for farming, notably for growing fruit trees – hence the name “Kirschberg”, what can be translated with “cherry hill”, for the quartier. Usually the top soil is taken away before something new is built.
      When I discovered these two grey mushrooms some days ago I started wondering where they came from, were they “stubborn survivors” from the prior use of the land / meadows, or were they accidentially transferred with new soil / earth ?
      They were all grey, grey-sih into darker grey, pretty high, so they stood out of the uncut grass, strong “Lamellen” under the “Kappe” (head ?). I would not eat them.
      What was left was not photogenic, infact just trampled grass with some earth, all wet. I went home, and had hot coffee.

      1. Thank you for trying, Mago! I appreciate the story even if you weren’t able to get a picture. Maybe you can find something clever to represent “Nature at rest” which is the theme for the next photo submission due Dec 31st. Thank you!
