With cooler temperatures and less humidity, it’s time to say good-bye to the mushrooms, and maybe these close-ups will do.
The now decaying fruiting bodies of have done their work and put out spores for new mycelium to grow.
Underneath the mycelium will keep composting and cleaning up and waiting patiently for spring and warmth.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if inside us could grow fungi, too, with moody tendrils of a soul-mycelium absorbing worries and fears, and strangely shaped fruiting thoughts sending out spores to grow elsewhere?
Spring and warmth will come.
