spring growths

morel mushroom in an odd place
from this view you can see the mushroom was
in the middle of a large gravel area of the yard
cool curls
dropped leaf with attached pod
underside of pod shows that a critter of some sort
must have taken a bite out of it before it dropped

These are great shots. The morel mushroom is so beautiful. I love mushrooms (both the edible ones as well as all of them to look at). I think mushrooms are as beautiful as flowers.

I hope you have a happy mother's day!

I like that you took natural things that would be most likely overlooked. Funny about where that mushroom was able to grow..I thought they liked darkish, damp places... Michelle
