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.
