Gills Like a Mushroom


March 11, 2017

When she wandered away from the lagoon at the Venice Myakka River Park, Lynda came across a dead and upended tree that may have been a cypress. The remnant of the root end was weather-sculpted in a way that reminded me of the gills of some mushrooms.

  1. Love these, especially the bottom one that reminds me of some rock wall canyon in some far away place.

  2. Exactly! It’s a great find…when you return to FL you should go see it again, see if there are noticeable changes.

    • I probably will go back there, Lynn. For a small park, this place has many attractions. Wonder how this tree will look next winter.

  3. Isn’t nature beautiful? ‘Gills’ is a clever choice of word for these.

    • Thanks, Andy. Yes, it sure is, even when it’s falling apart.
