Today as I was walking down the side of my yard,
something caught my eye in the neighbors yard right next to ours....
This orangey clump thingy !
They had recently dug up an old rotten stump,
they threw in some black dirt and have seeded the area.
As I got closer to inspect it, I deducted that it was some sort of mushroom
A rather large accumulation of this unique fungi
I had to know what it was and I'm pretty sure I've got it...
The best part is it's name
So fitting for this time of year
I cant wait to share it with you.....
This mushroom is called a
Jack O' Lantern Mushroom.... I love it, just in time for Halloween!
The information I found on the internet, was helpful in defining this odd looking fungi
*It grows at the base of diciduous trees & stumps
or on the ground from decaying underground roots.
Bright orange in color
Grows July thru November.
