fairy fingers ~ 02/20/11 ~ Garland Ranch


It is thanks to fellow bloggers, like John Wall and Jim Johnson, who have helped me with fungal IDs, that I'm now not too afraid to take pics with hopes to properly identify them. Most online pics of this club and coral mushroom are bright white, but then again like the cauliflower mushroom I found at Jacks Peak, I think this fruiting body is a bit older. Oh, as an explanation of how I even know which oak is shown above, this is the branch that Andy and I married under before it broke off. We affectionately call this tree our wedding tree. As this tree dies, we've been amazed at how much life is growing on it. More to come from this tree...

Clicked on your "wedding tree" link and followed the thread. Oh, what a lovely and romantic idea, Katie. The use of the ellipsis at the end of your blog is rather intriguing!
