Hello everyone! A big oops for me, I forgot the Nature’s Art for Tuesday! Amazing how I managed to do that. But we are here today with another look at the beauty to be found out in nature and sometimes these things can be found in our own yards, or when we walk down the street, or in parks. However, I am not suggesting going to parks or other public places these days. But we can still enjoy the beauty of our natural world right here with photos. Sometimes that is the best and safest way to do things. Today is really a beautiful day once more, the sun was shining brightly, but now the clouds have taken over again and there are a few lazy snowflakes floating to the ground. Not that I really want to see snowflakes right now, but it does look sort of nice anyway. Rain would be more fun to see though, but I’m sure that will come too.
And now for our look at some interesting art in nature with our mushrooms…
Here we have a “shaggy parasol” mushroom, which I think is really quite interesting. It is quite large, this one is 5 inches (12.5cm) across the top and they can get larger than that. They are listed as edible, but some people can have severe reactions to this so it’s really best to leave it alone and just enjoy it’s beauty.
I think I showed this one once before without knowing what it was. This is the “orange mock-oyster” mushroom. It is very bright and easy to see. When broken it has a very disagreeable odor that smells much like sulfur, and although it shouldn’t have to be said after smelling it, do not eat! Just enjoy it’s beauty right where it is.
There is our nature’s art for today, I hope you have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
