Macro Monday: Fungi

Posted by on 6 September 2010

For today’s Macro Monday, I’ve chosen a fungi (mushroom) that was growing in a potted tomato plant in my mom’s greenhouse.  I loved the color and texture of it.  You can see it growing right along with the tomato plant….

And you can see the soft, yet rippled texture of the mushroom cap…..

And finally, you can see a new cap emerging from the ground at the base of the large fungi and the tomato plant and it even has a water drop on it….

I’m always fascinated by things like this.  It’s amazing how they just grow where you least expect them to.  Mom removed the mushroom right after I took my photos.  She didn’t want it to interfere with the growing of her tomato plant.  Still, such interesting things one can find under the roof of a green house!!

    Amazing details on the fungi.

    I often find little mushrooms in my pots especially when it gets too wet… And like your Mom, I remove them as quickly as possible.

    Isn’t that just adorable! I find the ‘unwanted’ growing things quite interesting, too.
