Mushroom rose

Walking today, something caught Jilda's attention. She'd forgotten her phone, so she called me back to have a look at a mushroom that looked like a rose.

I know the color is wrong, and it looks like some slugs may have had their way with the shroom, but still.

It wasn't there yesterday, but we got a downpour at dusk yesterday. Mushrooms love the rain and the humidity when it's hotter than a steam room. They thrive. If it keeps raining, this mushroom rose could be as big as a volleyball in a few days.

Tomorrow is another rare free day. I'm thinking about checking the beehives to see if there is any honey to harvest. That should be fun.

Have a great weekend.


  1. It must be in the water, but you guys sure find some neat stuff down there in Bama!
    God catch
    Sherry and jack

  2. Love the funghi rose.
    Good luck with the bees tomorrow.

  3. My knowledge of fungi is limited to locale, but your mushroom looks like a Laetiporus cincinnatus (Pale Chicken of the Woods). Don't eat it. Beautiful photo.

  4. Wow, that is really cool! I've never seen one like it ~ of course my exposure to mushrooms in Albuquerque is quite limited :-)

  5. A rose by any other name is still a rose. I love the looks of mushrooms as so many look cool
