Hello dear viewers, I made it out to the annual Mushroom Show again this year. This time around it was a challenge----it was pouring down rain, the show had a very high attendance and the tables the mushrooms were displayed on were almost impossible to get to because of the crowds. I'm not the most patient person in the world so I was unhappy that it was taking a good 30 min just to look at the mushrooms on one side of one table. And there were many, many tables. So instead of going through things methodically, I just kind of skipped around and took pics when I saw an opening. Here they are!
There was a display of lichens, too:
And a whole display of dyes that can be made from lichens and mushrooms:
The annual Scarecrow Contest was in full swing:
With one particularly creepy entry:
And I leave you with a classic fairytale mushroom, the amanita muscaria, or fly agaric:
