A peaceful lazy day with no agenda and, amazingly, some free-time allowed one of my favorite photographic indulgences: walking my yard hunting for mushrooms. I find the varieties of mushrooms simply amazing and love to lay stomach-to-the-ground taking their photo.

pink mushroom

They really are pink — found growing under some cedars.


I like the lace around the cap.


I believe it's some sort of bolete.

shaggy parasol

On the mushroom walk I was told the grounds crew fought over who took home the shaggy parasols — we have hundreds growing around the yard.


I should have photographed this one a couple of days ago when it was a better specimen but I still like shape and form.
