Stumbled across a puffball mushroom in the neighborhood. They’re big and edible - this one was about 8in in diameter.
Crown Tipped Coral Fungus (Artomyces pyxidatus) at a local nature preserve.
September 6th - Well, it’s coming on to autumn, and one of the positives about that is fungi. It looks set to be a bumper year, too - caps, toadstools, polypores, puffballs will all put in appearances in the coming weeks.
These gorgeous shaggy ink caps - edible when young - were growing on Brownhills Common, in a spot where I’ve not seen them before. Pretty much perfect specimens.
