These photos were also taken at Seaside Garden, however flowers weren’t the topic this time. It took quite some time to find various mushrooms after the recent rain storm in the area. The pay off was well worth the search.

These tiny bulbed mushrooms were hidden in brush, looking a little burned and withered but still pretty nonetheless.

Often times we find mushrooms in dark and dank places, but these were more out in the open considering the environment. What caught my eye was the pack of bulbous mushrooms looking pristine except for small specs of dirt.

A little sun behind the flat capped mushrooms show you just how close these were to being exposed, however not all mushrooms require darkness to thrive.
