Stump

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.

Stump with Character, South Lido Park 1


January 13, 2017

Many years ago I came across a stump in South Lido Park that appealed to me. Somehow it reminded me of the R2D2 of Star Wars, so that’s what I named it. Over the years (maybe 12?) it has increased in character while looking more and more fragile.

Strange Mushrooms


October 25, 2016

An expert on mushrooms I’m not, but I do have an interest. I have never seen these little guys. Maybe when they grow up they will look familiar. Here on the pine stump the biggest one is about half an inch in diameter. . . . The more I look at this photograph, the more I wonder if they are puffballs. I’ve never seen pinkish-orange puffballs, and I’ve never seen puffballs growing on a tree stump.
