FUNGUS AMONG US OR FINDING BEAUTY WHERE YOU DID NOT PLANT IT


I like to take "walk abouts" around Hawk's Creek ( my little home in the boonies) from time to time. I always find interesting acts of nature. On this post I am showing photos of fungus beauties and other such wonderful sightings. I do not know anything about these oddities. Maybe some of you do and can inform me. I especially found the long skinny pencil like treasure a curiosity. Sometimes just taking a short adventure, without purpose, lends the most beauty.
Found this little yellow beauty living in my aloe  plant.

This stump may appear dead, but look closer. What a splendid display of rich color.

Moss! Something I do not see very often in my very dry and hot little piece of nature.

Here is the pencil like weird finding.  I had to stop and quickly retrieve my cell phone to snap this picture. I have never seen anything like it before.

OK.. Truthfully, this was not found at Hawk's Creek.  I guess I have a fascination with fungus.  Anyway, I crawled under a tree(thus poor quality pic) in Alaska to see this poisonous beauty called "Pretty Little Puker"..very poisonous.

This interloper is not a fungus , of course, but he sure was a trouble maker. Caught him drinking out of my fountain. 
He then took up residence under my barn and left the place in a mess..so he was like a growing fungus.

    Thank you for the pics. I like the way you "stop and smell the roses" and then share with us townies and apartment dwellers.

    Paula, I love taking pics of my "crazy" place. Never know what I might find when I walk around with a camera in my pocket and pruners in my hands:-) I appreciate your kind comment.
