Fungi and Rain

An inspiration for a necklace!
It's been raining a lot around our Prescott area  and mushrooms of various kinds are bursting through the ground.  On a recent trip to Tucson we went to the Sweetwater Reclamation Area (a favorite place to see birds) where we found more fungi.  I've been fascinated with fungi for years and have accumulated many pictures!  Thought I'd share some with you this week.  

These tiny umbrellas are less than an inch in diameter growing next to a potted plant

I find the colors, shapes and textures so interesting.   I don't know their names and need to look those up. In the meantime I'm sharing their beauty!


Beautiful flare to this fungi



Another angle of the flared fungi

Stacks of bracket fungus




I love how the bracket fungus attaches to the curve of the tree
