We used to have a giant maple tree in our yard. “The Grand Ol’ Lady” is what I called her.
A couple of years ago she died and we cut her down, leaving just a few feet of the trunk.

This year I have had the privilege of taking some photos of mushrooms that were growing up around the old “drip line”.

Here is one of the images.

 

Yesterday, I found a piece of bark that had fallen off the remaining trunk.
Taking a photo of the moss etc … I found this “fairy world”, as it has been described to me.
(I have included my finger in the image to show the size of these mushrooms.)

You are a wonderful photographer… as well as woodworker!
Love all 3 pictures… they are almost eerie in nature but beautiful in design!

These are incredible, Debbie! Many times in our walks in the woods here I see many different varieties of beautiful mushrooms. I always wish I would have taken my camera with me. Your pictures are amazing! They look so beautiful and delicate. Isn’t nature incredible?

Thanks for sharing with us this morning! :)

yes it is, Sheila…. just incredible.

As I was taking the “miniatures” photo, my neighbour yelled over and asked me if I was having a nap… I must have looked weird, sprawled out on the grass…

Maybe your neighbor thought they were ‘magic mushrooms’ and you were on a magic journey! :)

haha that could be… I was also taking photos of a giant mushroom that had somehow been pulled from the ground and I was holding it to the sky for some of the photos… yes, that would definitely have been a strange sight..
