When the ground gets too wet to absorb any more moisture, mushrooms come up.
A least that's what the experts claim.
I grew up believing that mushrooms in the grass came from dog poop.
Around here the ground can get super saturated very quickly and the mushrooms come soon there after.
Anyway, I proved to myself that the dog poop theory is somewhat wrong when these sweet little mushrooms appeared in a large flower pot outside.
Then I went on a mushroom hunt in the yard and did not find any other cute mushrooms but I did find this aged one.
Ewwwww! That looks like some old guys butt.
On walks with the dogs I have found a lot that are scattered through various yards. They tend to be clumped together and contain more than one type.
I have not tried to eat any of them because, despite evidence to the contrary, I still believe that at least some of them come from dog poop.
Prove me wrong.
Have a great week!
