Seemingly uncommon for mushrooms..

North, TX

We have always related mushrooms growing after it rains. But yesterday we were walking around and were surprised to see so many different types of mushrooms pushing their way through the hard, dry soil.

Isn't this a strange thing?

It has given me a new motivation to learn more about mushrooms, many of which are edible. Wouldn't that be great to know which ones you can harvest and make a nice wild mushroom meal? This particular one smells similar to a button mushroom.

This mushroom is soft like one of those Sealy posturepedic mattresses and leaves an indent where you put your fingers...smooth and soft surface, smells kinda like shitake.

there are several others that look like different varieties too but think I will stop here.

I look forward to comments on any of the above mushrooms.

What a fantastic fungus tour --a year's worth of finds in a single walk.

Thanks!

The 1st mushroom looks like a type of Amanita. They are poisonous.

I'm glad you enjoyed the tour!

But I guess we won't be putting any wild mushrooms on the dining table anytime soon!

Metrosideros, thank you for the info. This one also looks like an Amanita mushroom.
