I managed to find a few mushrooms for this labor day edition of #mushroommonday

I found a tree stump that some lovebirds put their initials on. Right above the mark a tiny batch of oysters decided to sprout. If only the initials were F+L it would be perfect for the Fungi Lovers community.

I left them to hopefully grow larger later.

There are still some summer chanterelles out.

I only found two, not enough for a meal but if it manages to rain again I'll hopefully find quite a few out before fall hits.

Here is an update on my flower pot mushrooms that sprouted in my pepper plant.

There are still some small ones sprouting.

Here is a shot showing the little baby one, the medium pair and a fully grown one.

The full grown one should be drying up pretty soon.

I gave it some water to hopefully make it last a bit longer... Too bad these are poisonous.

Now for a random spying chipmunk. I caught this guy staring at me while I was rummaging through the weeds looking for mushrooms. He probably thought I was after his stash of acorns.

your pepper plant guest pictures look very nice, the best part of the post for me. sadly you can not harvest them and add to a mushroom !PIZZA -- as two tiny shrooms is not enough, right?

Yeah sadly these Leucocoprinus birnbaumii have toxins in them that cause gastric ulcers. Pretty bad when combined with peppers as well lol.

It was spying on me while I searched for mushrooms. They are all over the place around here.

They are smuggling acorns to store for winter. But they have to watch out for other squirrels stealing their acorns.

Yes.
They also have traits like humans who steal other people's property.
But they were extraordinary.

I wish I could find mushrooms closer to where I live.
This weekend, I shall go mushroom hunting!
In the meantime, I'll enjoy your photographs.
They are lovely, @sketch.and.jam!
