fat ones, skinny ones, grumpy ones too
It's been an incredible year for mushrooms in Yellowknife. I hardly know how else to say it. Long days we always have but it's also been steadily mild, around 20°C (68°F). And spritzes of rain have come once or twice a week. Long sun, mellow, ever so damp - voila! - MUSHROOMS! All in wildly different shapes and sizes.
I LOVE this one! Doesn't the taller mushroom look like the grumpiest mushroom ever? I've laughed and laughed over him, he is so adorable. And don't you just hate it when you're really mad about something and someone finds it funny or cute? It pulls the rug right out from underneath you, sputtering. The more I laugh at him the grumpier he gets. I don't blame him but I can't help myself.
So, so tiny.
Remember this mushroom?
To give you some perspective of its size ...
