Each time we get more than our fair share of rain, wild mushrooms show up in the yard. Here is my entire collection of weirdos that have put in an appearance on the Southern Rural Route over the years. I offer these mushrooms for your oohing and aahing enjoyment only. I don’t know the common or scientific names of the majority of these mushrooms and I’m not trucking off to the library for a wheel-barrow sized encyclopedia on mushrooms.
I may have over-watered my begonia. Based on this mushroom having sprouted in a planted pot, I believe it is Leucocoprinus birnbaumii which is explained here.
