Now THAT"S a mushroom!
This beautiful thing is growing at the base of a large oak which stands on the fence line on the east side of the yard.... I believe it is a chicken of the woods mushroom. They are eatable and have many medicinal qualities. I'm afraid to try it though. The operative words being " I believe"....not, "I'm sure.".
Here are two smaller things growing to the side of the same oak. I wish I had had a yard stick to stand beside them when I took these. They are huge. You can't get any idea of their size by these pictures.
Here are a few shots I was able to sneak in of Little Man when he wasn't looking.
As you may have surmised, Cohen can lead me anywhere; all he need do is point.
