I Heart Macro- Mushrooms anyone?

The extra rain the past few weeks has caused my yard to sprout a mushroom garden. It's really quite fascinating. I love all of the different shapes and colors- all very inspirational for this Macro Sunday, eh? And then of course, I got hit in the head a few times as my oaks are shedding their acorns.

  4. Such a variety of mushroom! Love the acorns. Just shove them into the dirt where you want an oak tree - someday. They will germinate next spring after the warm weather settles in for a while. I started one in a yogurt cup of dirt.

  22. I'm loving your mushroom macros, but I must admit that the clustery one in the burn pile (is that what that is?) that is simply awesome. Beautiful shots Lorelei!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
