Pippin’s Mushrooms!

Nature, Photo

A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. The standard for the name “mushroom” is the cultivated white button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus; hence the word “mushroom” is most often applied to those fungi that have a stem, a cap and gills or pores on the underside of the cap.

Today we headed into the forest to search for mushrooms. Not to gather and eat them, but to capture them on film. To our surprise, there were only a few. But I share what I have ;)

    Great idea. We don’t usually see a lot if mushrooms around here. I love the way you put the little photos at the top. How did you do that?


    • But now you have mushrooms, even in your own back yard! :D
      The little photos are a Gallery. You will find this option when you upload your photos to WordPress. A Slideshow is also possible.


  2. You couldn`t or wouldn`t eat them :)? I know nothing about mushrooms I`m afraid.., apart that some taste great… :), and I would never dare to pick them for a meal, might end up probably killing someone … ;)


    • Then this would have been the last post on Figments, Vibeke ;) Like you, I have no knowledge about the edibility of mushrooms. And there were so few, I didn’t have the heart to pick any.
      I love to eat mushrooms by the way, especially in sauces, mmm.
