Something’s Come Up


We Push

We Push

“Something’s come up on the hill! Quick, come see. It might be a couple varmints. Moles or something.”

Nope, they are not mysterious; just misunderstood and under appreciated. We have here a couple of mushrooms who’ve pushed up the dirt on the hillside and are finally being noticed. The quick paced gophers, moles and ground squirrels gave them competition underground, but the mushrooms persevered. They moved slowly and gradually, pushing up the dirt with surprising strength and commitment.

These two mushrooms encountered scavenging snails upon their emergence but still they have survived and are rewarded for their efforts. They have a new home for a brief time and most importantly they will spread seed for new mushrooms to take their place in the next growing period. All they want is to ensure existence of their kind, and a silent unassuming approach works best for them.

Hooray Mushroom Duo! You’ve made it! And I am happy that I was observant enough to spot you during your game of hide and seek. Thank you for letting me peek into your world and your fungi culture!

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
