In late autumn (before the rain and the snow) my husband and I went out foraging for fire wood. We started in October and by the time we got to late November things were getting wet. Neither of us have ever been mushroom hunting (not sure if it is called that) and we only know the basic popular mushrooms like Button, Portobello, Shiitake, and so on. I also know of a mushroom that grows year round and can be dried out and used to start a fire, like paper…but I can’t remember what it is called.
I tried to use my regular lens to get up close to these little mushrooms that were sticking off this log as though they had been peeled away from the bark. I am not sure what they are called, but they are wild British mushrooms that grow in Oxford’s nature preserves.
Until next time,
