Fungi

After rain comes: More Fungi

The rain has stimulated a range of fungi to grow.  I have not had time to research any of them, so at the moment, I can only write about where they were found.  See the captions beneath the photos for this information. If you know about any of these mushrooms, I would love to hear from you.

I found a couple like this one growing in the grass on the way to the letterbox.

I love the salmon or coral colour on the top of this delicate looking mushroom. It was growing in a clearing in the bushland on our property.

By placing the camera on the ground and hoping for the best, I managed to get a shot of the white folds of the salmon coloured mushroom.

This tiny mushroom was growing in the sand on the bank of the dam.

Again, placing the camera on the ground gave me a glimpse of the underside of this mushroom.

Beneath a tree on the grassy slope leading from the house to the dam, this huge mushroom is growing. It is at least 10 cm across, maybe more.

Even the greenhouse is not fungus free – these tiny ones are growing in a side pocket on a strawberry pot.
More Fungi 8
On ground recently covered by a piece of tin, now open to the elements, a curious looking yellow mushroom is growing.

Not far from the yellow mushroom is another brown round form. I have been told that they are Puff Balls, and if you stand on them, they spray spores into the air.
