‘shrooms part two


I just couldn’t resist doing one more post about the daily mushroom haul in our backyard. As far as I can tell from a few minutes research on the internet, we have several varies of Amanita, at least one Russulalaes, and two Boletales (the two velvety red and yellow mushrooms in photos 1 & 2 and the dark brown monster in photo 3).

    hey oami. you have such a nice blog! i managed to peruse back to july… the mushroom photos are gorgeous. i cannot believe how many varieties you have (pale green!) all my yard mushrooms are a boring white. and the details on that cicada husk are very cool. as a kid, i lived in the midwest and i use to catch those giant things and cup them in my hands (!?) i would never do that now! and i have to tell you that “not too soon” has been in my head for weeks. (i love tanya.) as a fan of your creations, it’s nice to get to know you better!

  2. Thanks Betty! Glad you made your way over here. Aren’t the mushrooms amazing? Seems like there is a new variety every day. I think they must do well here partly because it’s so humid. I’m pretty sure “not too soon” has been played at maximum volume in my car many, many times over the years…You held live cicada’s in your hands???? Brave. The markings almost look like something from that movie District 9!

  3. so pretty! awesome photos.

    mushroom 15…holy moly!!! is that a form of puffball? and does that mean it is “edible and fine-tasting while still white and firm”? or as my son says, “it isn’t inedible.” he collects these little books…”a golden nature guide”…mostly from the 50s and 60s, and the first quote is from the one titled “non-flowering plants.”

  5. I’m pretty sure it is Betty, though we haven’t tried to eat it…after reading your comment I did a little googling and came up with essentially the same info as your son’s golden nature guides – edible and tasty when fresh. I think ours are a little past fresh, have to wait for the next batch.
