Can mushrooms cry?

The weather is changing. Even though it was still warm today, you could see changes in the sky. And there is a promise of rain A front dropping down from Kansas City or somewhere up to the north and west.

We walked early. A quick text to our niece Samantha and her son Jordan confirmed they were in. So we walked a few laps around the Empire Walking Club track (a private joke.) We actually walked around the perimeter of our farm. It's a good walk.

Climbing the steep sides of the hollows gets the old heart pumping. On the second lap, Jilda noticed something by a stump from a tree we lost in a storm a few years ago. It was a mushroom. She didn't have her phone, so she pointed it out to me. When I took a closer look, I found it interesting. It has a weed growing through the cap. When I leaned in closer to snap a photo, I noticed a drop of water. I'd never seen that before. It looked like a tear.  

Can mushrooms cry? What could have made it that sad?


  1. Poor thing. The changing weather is confusing it and making it sad.

  2. Love Jilda's eye - and your photo.
    I suspect the mushroom wept because it had been violated by that pushy weed. Or that is my story anyway.

  3. If mushrooms could talk.

  4. Oh now I've seen it all. A crying mushroom. Poor thing got stabed through the heart by a sharp weed.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. Such an unusual sight. I think the mushroom does have a tear.

    You'd cry, too, if you had weeds growing out of you!!

  7. That does look like a tear.

  8. How sad--crying mushrooms!

  9. If I had a weed growing out of my head I think I would cry too! It must have one hell of a headache

  10. You would cry too, if it happened to you! (remember that line?) LOL Love the color you catch.

  11. Maybe it's not a weed but the beginning of a weeping willow.

  12. Do they cry? I hope not as that would be sad
