What ever they are they always fascinate me.
These are no little toadstools...they measure about 8 inches across and pop up after rains in July, August and Sept. here.
I love the shapes and textures and the interesting clusters they make.
Not being a "Fungi" specialist we just admire them in their natural state and take lots of pictures.
Sometimes I use the pics for drawing subjects later in the year when it's too nasty to be outside.
Last year we had beautiful red and some interesting golden ones too...so far this year just the white ones.
They start out as these adorable little buds and then grow up almost in an instant.
Whatever they are they make good "eye" candy :)
