Mushrooms are everywhere…..

……they grow on everything. They come in all colors, shapes, textures and sizes; orange, yellow, brown, spotted, purple, red, smooth, white, black, shaggy, cupped, and fringed. Every day I head down the trail wondering what new mushroom will have pushed its way into the world. Actually my favorite mushroom trait is their earth moving powers! Okay, it’s more like their humus moving powers. Big mushrooms remind me of big, slow moving school yard bullies. The mushrooms shoulder out the hummus, twigs, diminutive plant material and force their way into the world.
