These mushrooms appeared on our front lawn just in time for Halloween, complete with an icky-sticky black goo around the edges.
If I hadn’t watch them hatch from their egg-shaped beginnings I would have believed they were someone’s Halloween decorations had gone walk-about!
My favorite part of autumn is watching the many different mushrooms that pop-up in the undergrowth. One has to be quick however as they are only a temporary fixture, disappearing as quickly as they appear.
Temporary is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for this week.
What a combination – mushrooms and raindrops. Having to pick my moment to run up the driveway in between showers to photograph them maybe not so exciting but well worth the effort. Well, I think so, lol!
As I was belly down on the ground endeavouring to get “the shot“, I heard foot-steps coming up the other-side of the driveway from my neighbours. By the time I sat up there was no one around, there was only the sound of a car door closing.
Guess they didn’t want to scare the wildlife!😂
Miss P from Life is Like That suggested this week’s prompt of MAGIC for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, was a perfect opportunity to share the results of our combined efforts from a few weeks back. And I have to say, I agree!
Knowing my love for mushrooms, whilst on a visit to Vancouver Island, Miss P shared with me this photo of a mushroom she’d recently seen. It was glorious. However as you can see, I couldn’t help but have some fun, adding to it just a tad, lol!😂
Thank you again for thinking of me Miss P – and as you say… Life is Like That!
For the Weekly Photo Challenge from the Daily Post a couple of weeks ago, I selected a photo of some toadstools growing along the side of my driveway. Two weeks later this is they, a tad sadder.
Should you wish to see these tantalizing toadstools in the midst of their prime, click here. Not sure if they were mushrooms or toadstool I went with toadstools as nothing seemed to be eating them then or now.
This had me thinking they were poisonous hence… toadstools.
