Why this fascination?

A fallen tree in the woods is an exhibit of the old, last year's shelf fungus and the new, the flourishing mosses of the turn from winter to spring.  I have never met a fungus I was not fascinated by making me notorious in my family for stopping to photograph everyone of them when hiking up north.  Although I study all the books on mushrooms, I am afraid to eat what I find, except for the storied Morels.  Hard to believe but we need rain if there is to be a good crop soon.

  1. I've yet to see a morel in the wild. I think I get up there too late to find them.
