Mushrooms are the excrescences of underground fungus networks.
Excrescences! In my yard! At my home! Do the underground fungus networks make you reassured about the health of my yard or is it worrisome? Will the fungus grab me and pull me under?
We’ll have to wait and see.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: excrescence.
[…] shown a photograph of these fungi from my yard a few weeks ago. They are changing. They still look like mushroom flowers but more mature. The fungal network still […]
The fungus will grab us all and pull us underground eventually. It is the way of the world.
You should hear how fungi talk about us! ;-)
I definitely want to. Do tell.
I should hear, too, but so far no luck… ;-)
Only certain varieties will pull you under. When that happens, take a bite out of one side of the mushroom (I mean the excrescence) and see what happens. If that doesn’t work, take a bite from the other side.
“One bite makes you smaller and one bite makes you tall”.
I think the presence of mushrooms in your yard are a sign of healthy soil. But the risk of being pulled under still exists so steer clear!
I don’t know what these are. But they seem to open up like flowers. Are they trying to attract bees?
