Tiny Mushrooms and Autumn Blooms

Little mushrooms.

Not in the woods, in my backyard, mushrooms. Or a small outdoor dining set for faeries. Mycena inclinata, “clustered bonnet” or “oak-stump bonnet cap,” I’m pretty sure, growing on one of the pieces of one of my old maple trees I’m using around my yard.

Every once in a while I don’t remember to take my DSLR outside when I take out the trash, or when I just go out in my yard for something equally quick. You’d think I’d know by now to ALWAYS take my DSLR. But when I don’t have the time or inclination to run into the house and get it, I’ll usually give my cell phone a chance to get the photo, especially macro photos of flowers and things. Here is a collection from the past few days when the temperatures dropped and cold rains came, but mushrooms are still popping up and flowers blooming out there.

This nasturtium has eyelashes and eyebrows. Kind of glam.

Unconcerned about freezing rain. (Which melted.) More eyelashes, and TEETH.

Today was a nasty weather day, cold with rain, freezing rain, even some snow early this morning. But the asters aren’t deterred from their joy. I didn’t mind so much, I needed to stay inside and focus on things. Great day for that!
