"Nature alone is Antique, and the oldest art a Mushroom" ~ Thomas Carlyle, Sartor Resartus
A trip to the forest floor today . In such a semi arid area one would not expect to be finding so many fungal species thriving. Carefully making my way in the lower wetland part of the yard there are mushrooms of all descriptions . Small petite ones hide amongst the mosses . Large Mushrooms pop up in protected tree roots .
Deep in the forest the floor sustains a whole array of life . Mosses abound and the floor is green with these little creatures .
