Outdoor Wednesday



Welcome to another addition of Outdoor Wednesday. Susan, http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com has the best outdoor show around. She would love having you drop by for a visit.

Once upon a time when we had rain, this was some mushrooms growing on a tree. I had never seen one that did this. I have had plenty on the ground.
This little plant was trying so hard to grow out of this old rotten tree. I am sorry to report it never made it.

That last picture looks like elephant feet!! A house nearby here has the tree mushrooms, only I didn't know what they were, thanks for the identification!

Those are some amazing photos of the outdoors. I dont think I have ever seen a mushroom growing from a tree. That is pretty darn cool!

I love your outdoor photos! The fungus is a different on than I have seen in person. I have seen it in books.
We need rain, I guess. I suppose it will come with one of the warmer days so I can't go out, but we do need it so we can have pretty flowers later. We could also use some leaves on the trees for the hotter times this summer!
Have a good week- Tete

Mushrooms are great subject for photography. Remember this - Mushroom?

Anyway, I'm a nature lover and I feel sorry for this young plant.

Happy Wednesday from World of Vhincci!

What an intriquing mushroom almost looks like a frog ;)

That mushroom looks like a creature from the ocean! Very strange. The little plant that could--almost make it. Happy Outdoor Wed.

It is amazing how things try to grow even in sidewalk cracks. Some make it. Some plants don't. See you next week.

I love the one that looks like a cave it looks like a hiding place but it isn't safe.

Leslie said...

Mushrooms growing on trees is never a good sign unfortunately, but they do provide some interesting character as well as lichen...

Amazing photos. We had some of those last year on a tree in town. I'll have to keep my eyes open to see if it re-appears this year.

in our forests there are lots of mushrooms growing on trees like that. But you can´t eat them. :)

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

I've seen them on trees here. I always wonder how people know which ones are safe to eat!

I love to see those growths on trees -- looks like you had a good foresty hike there LV!
