Wondering about wild grapes

Friday, October 30, 2015

Walked Up the Driveway Today.

The first thing that caught my eye were a bunch of teeny little mushrooms.  To give you an idea of their size, that is a nickel laying there among them.  Dang, the elves that live under those toadstools must be awfully short. . . (grin).  I just had to take a picture and post it here on my blog:

Then a little further on I saw some more.  You have to look carefully to see them hiding among the leaves:

Then not much further there was a stump with all kinds of thing going on.  Different kinds of fungi and some sawdust from something boring into it:

Then I got closer and took a picture of this strange looking fungus:

It just goes to prove the old saying that there is fungus among us.

This next picture is of a mushroom that is shaped like an egg:

And the last fungus picture shows a mushroom in full bloom:

Of course there were wild flowers along the driveway, also.
A yellow one:

And blue ones:

And of course a good morning glory to you:

I love the diverse and beautiful blooms of nature, whether fungus or flowers.  Hope these pictures brightened your day.  They sure did brighten my day.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

    1. Yep, I wouldn't want to wake up laying in the driveway. If I wanted to sleep in the driveway, I would do it in the RV.

  2. Your photos certainly brightened my day! Wish I had anything along mine, but I have a very short city driveway.

    1. I would not like to have to live in a city. I was raised a country boy and even now, in my 70's, I am still a country boy. Only have 12 acres here, but try to keep it as natural as possible.

  4. It's a good time of year to forage for edible wild mushrooms, but I wouldn't trust any of those. A pity you didn't find a large patch of chanterelles instead!

    1. Can't see it from the house, and I ain't going to walk down there in the rain. But I bet it is getting full.

  6. You have such interesting things growing along your driveway. Must be pleasant walking out for the mail.

    1. Actually, I have a post office box at the Cut-n-Shoot Post office. But I have a trash container sitting out on the front lot that I visit most every day. My wife walks a lot and stays on the driveway, some times I join her. I joined her when I spotted the mushrooms and went back and got my camera.
