We’ve had so much rain here these past few months that mushrooms are popping up all over the place.
I noticed these on the way into my office.
The shadows caught my interest as much as the mushrooms.
No complaints about all of our rain … we’re fortunate that we aren’t experiencing drought.
And just for the heck of it, I’m adding a handheld / no tripod / spur of the moment shot of the moon last night.
Mushrooms and Moons. Someone should write about that!
Between having a snake in the house, a flat tire on the truck, and an overfull work schedule, I’m way behind on your blogs! I look forward to catching up soon!
Happy Weekend, Everyone!
Lovely Laurie. Glad you stopped to take the pictures.
Thanks Edith! That morning light makes things look so great!
Great shots Laurie 🙂 Don’t eat them (see my Facebook post), LOL. Have a great weekend 🙂
Thanks Joe! Definitely not eating the mushrooms 🙂
‘Mushrooms and Moons’ Doesn’t that scream ‘read me!’ I’d have to……… Beautiful shot of the moon, which I missed again! I saw the full moon about 10 pm and noted how bright it was ……. wandered off to bed, waking in the small hours and noted how dark it was …….. sigh…….. the next day saw all the photos capturing the event by people more with it than me 🙂
Pauline, that happened to us, too. We got Wednesday night confused with Thursday night, so got up a day late. Sigh. Glad I’m not alone in this. I would have loved to see the moon.
I missed it that night, too! It was so cloudy (and my house is so tree surrounded) that I wasn’t able to see it. The next night though, when dropping by a friend’s home, I caught the moon!
Your place sounds amazing. I guess you take the good with the bad: gorgeous trees and creepy snakes.
They look like umbrellas blown inside out 🙂
They do!! I loved the black stripes!
Rainy days and gales, sounds like England 🙂
I love these gorgeous photos Laurie, especially the first one… makes me smile! 🙂
Elina, the first one is my favorite too. I liked the way they were all grouped together. Thanks!!
I’ve always wanted to take a class on foraging for mushrooms. I did get up to see the Blood Moon. The jet lag helped with that outing. Don’t worry about the visits…. I’ve been out of pocket myself!
Glad you got to see the moon, even if it was because of jet lag!
These are great photos, Laurie. Even fungus looks beautiful through your eyes.
I’ve always found mushrooms of any type fascinating. Thanks for sharing your view of the moon.
Thanks Alys. There are some really funky looking fungi in my backyard right now! Not pretty like these … funky is the best word I can come up with 🙂
I’ve had funky in my garden as well. It’s a wonder anyone thought to eat them, and how they can be either delicious or deadly.
tiny beautiful world and the moon picture is also so beautiful 🙂
Great shot of the moon with no tripod! I know how exciting it is to pull off a night shot like that! Your fungi are beautiful too, and all your photos pulled in some Autumn colors, even that coppery moon.
Oh no. Snakes in the house are not a good thing to have. Hope it didn’t upset your day too much. Love your fungi shots. They reminded me that I forgot to take a photo of some tiny fungi in our garden last week. I meant to…. lol
Mushrooms in moonlight. Moon over mushrooms. Moon shrooms. Mushroom moon. There is something there for someone. Nice photos, Laurie.
I can almost see some Gnomes prancing around West Virginia with shrumes like those to welcome them. LOL, do you ever arrive at work when you thought you would? There’s far too many treasures out the window. I especially love the first photo. It’s like a mushroom gang. They sent the tall guy out first to negotiate with that chick and her camera, HA I’m sure if you arrive to the office with dirt on your knees, they’ll probably know why. Just another day behind the lens of LOTBandOFT.
