Mushrooms abound!

We’ve always gotten a few mushrooms in our yard every year and this year is no exception.  They seem really abundant this year or it could be I’m more aware of them than ever before. Either way  they are fascinating to see. We are still having trouble identifying them and that seems to be a theme in our nature studies.

Here are the pictures we have so far.

We plan on doing a small study soon. I just want to introduce him to mushrooms so he’ll be  able to look for them while out and about. I’ll be posting on that soon. I’m still learning how to work programs on my android tablet and wordpress is one of the things still stumping me. I may have to utilize the desktop when hubby goes to work on Monday.

If you can help out with any identification of the mushrooms just post a comment. We could use the help.
