mushrooming – and a morning walk

So today I asked Tom if he wanted to come along for a walk; that way all 3 dogs could come.  He said yes! 

He doesn’t really like my wild spaces where Rubi and I walk so we headed to a local well used park with very nice groomed trails. And of course some intrepids have carved out their own little trails which is of course against park rules.

Any way, we had a lovely walk, saw some cool birds, the most unusual was the Pileated Woodpecker.

We also rescued a box turtle

 The turtle had gotten on to the stone path that has 8-12 inch side walls. There are cutouts for rainfall, but they are spaced apart.

Beautiful stream

Armillaria Tabescens

Armillaria Tabescens, aka Honey Mushroom. I took these.

This one is still unknown to me, the cap is about the size of a nickel.

Lots of these, Trametes, or Polypores.   I am still trying to identify these.

Phaeolus Schweinitzii

A very old Phaeolus Schweinitzii, aka Dyers Polypore

Anyway, it was a nice walk, the dogs are content, and we gonna eat some mushrooms!
