…seems to have turned into a compost heap. Well, it is almost two years old. But really, I got quite a shock when I walked by and saw what it was growing.
These are really odd mushrooms: they don’t seem to have a top over their gills.
I think it must have rotted away as they aged, but I’m not sure.
At any rate, they’re roughly 2 inches in diameter, and there’s LOTS of them.
Still pretty, though they’re certainly past their “best by” date.
This appears to be what they look like before they unfurl.
And maybe this as well?
But these are definitely not related. It’s a convivial mulch pile, evidently.
