Shroom Season

The Selkie is into mycology. So, whenever I’m oot and aboot, I try to take pictures of fungi I’ve found.

These were spotted yesterday after my run, near one of the local apartment complexes. They are probably edible, though neither the Selkie nor I would recommend it, since they’re probably saturated with landscaping chemicals and neither of us are professionals. I hear they turn to ooze very quickly after you pick them (the Selkie is fond of the term deliquescence) so today will involve fetching one home (if they’re still there) and watching it disintegrate.

And taking snaps of it for the Selkie. Because that’s what writing partners do.

  • Lookit the baby ones peeping out from under the shaggy mane’s skirts!

  • I just keep hearing Tchaikovsky and seeing the Fantasia mushrooms dance.
