Mushroom Fever

Last year on Labor Day I caught Mushroom Fever while visiting with my aunt.  What is Mushroom Fever?  Did I eat a magic mushroom and find myself teetering on the precipice of insanity?  No, I became infected with a passion for  finding and photographing as many different mushrooms as possible.  In my aunt’s yard, full of oaks and pines, I found some mushrooms of amazing color.  Since then, on the property of friends who have the same infection, we have located so many shapes, sizes and colors as to be mind-blowing.  Magic Mushrooms!   This is a sampling of the over fifty different kinds of mushrooms I’ve seen in the past year.  If you have property with woods, take a stroll, find a place to sit and rest and just look around.  In a few moments you will be surprised by the appearance of mushrooms all around you.  Look for very small ones, yellow ones, white ones, purple ones, coral-shaped ones and colonies of mushrooms on dead logs or at the base of trees.  In Virginia, now that we have had a few rains and a lot of humidity, you are likely to find them everywhere.  But, be careful.  Mushroom Fever is contagious.  A friend caught it from me just yesterday.

    Can’t say I’ve gotten the fever quite yet, Pat, but I’ll surely be keeping a lot closer eye on the mushrooms I normally just pass by.

    Next year: Chicken Of The Woods!!!
