Well call me the kid with the frozen feet. I apologize, I hate wearing socks and 4/5s of the year i wear tongs, or as some people call them, Flip-Flops.. One foot wears a John Kerry Flip-Flop and the other foot wears a George Bush Flip-Floppy.
Anyway, here are a few images of this mornings delight, just sitting where they were minding their own business and I came along to greet them and then for some strange reason, the sun appeared.
btw. These are from several different patches at different locations apart from each other and afew are from just one place.
In this nesxt image, I did not pose anything. I found this exactly as you see it. Someone was there before me picking or yesterday and left opne along side of the small grouping. the blue was so pretty so i did not touch it up with the photo adjust on my computer. Noticed y how curled the stem of the bluing shroom is from the cap.
There were many open fruitings like the one below. Notice the 2nd shroom on the bottom left has a tinge of purple-brown spore color showing on the top of the cap. Probably had a bigger shroom over a smallerone which someone else picked.
In the image below, I was having fogging problems with my glasses and I cropped off the left side of the shrooms. Sure is a shame, that was such a perfect image before i accidently saved the wrong cropped copy.
The two on the left chopped in half were very attractive shrooms. To the eye that is.
Another grouping in a very open place where anyone could see it. And a lot of Feet traffic going on. One English lady ask about buying a good book on mushrooms. She was from South Africa from the U of Natal in Pretoria. And likes edible mushrooms. She talked to me about the Titanicus termite mushroom which gets caps witht he diameter of two to three feet. Grown by termites.
She said someone told her to buy Daniel Stuntz' book on the Savory Wild mushroom with Margeret Mcinney,
Of course it is more of a book on what edible shrooms are good to prepare.
I told her of David Arora and the Audubon Field Guide.
So here are the mushrooms which were at the Seattle U.
From another location in the north of the city. These guys were hiding in grasses and were about so slimy you would have thought a few were rotting Coprinus.
One healthy one. The stems were okay but the capps were soaked from the wetness of the night.
And here is a scene. I left hundreds and hundreds of thesee fellows to grow a few more inches. I hope they are still there on Sunday when i return to the sound of my mind.
