There are many types of mushrooms on the West Coast, from the magic type to the edible type and everything dangerous in between – and finding them is no problem. Which is What is the problem and not one I am about to research. Too easy to make a dangerous mistake.
I have to admit that I am fascinated by the many ways that Mushrooms and other Fungi show up on almost any natural surface. Be it rocky surfaces, crevices, rotten logs, or simply erupting up from the ground – fungi are prevalent and persistent!
Right now I have been noticing some large, meaty looking varieties. They push up through the loose loam and are quite flat with a large smooth surface, some are coloured as well. Tree fungi are particularly colourful right now.
This last weekend I saw many different mushrooms – I really should learn more about them.
Especially how to dye yarn with them – that might not be quite so dangerous. Dying yarn with Mushrooms – I even found a site – ShroomWorks – so many things to learn and so little time!
