Now that is a mushroom! It is almost the size of a dinner plate and the arrangement on the mushroom plate is so elegant. It is growing right now in my front yard at an old cut-down tree site. It makes me wish that I could have had lessons from the one person that I have ever known who said she could tell which mushrooms are poisonous and which ones can be eaten safely.
Perhaps there is a lesson here? Perhaps I could google it and learn!
