An offer to tag along this afternoon on a mushroom foray found LOTS of interesting mushrooms, some edible, some not tasty (but technically edible) and a few Amanitas (definitely not to be eaten).
We had a delightful time (our dogs whizzed around the woods, plopped themselves in the creek, and spent a lot of young dog energy).
Here's a sampling of what we found (that is, the mushroom expert, not me). But I was fascinated by the diversity of the mushrooms that we did discover. I don't remember which were edible and which weren't (the scientific names that were provided weren't familiar to me!) But they were all interesting and beautiful.
