Divinebunbun lives in a log cabin on 100 acres in the rocky Ozark foothills. Her porch is a box seat on nature and the seasons. This is her journal of chores and mysteries, natural history photos, and observations.
The Divinebunbun Comedy Poetry Bird and Bunny Ozark Foothills Log
Nice wet woods today, growing thickly with greenery now, showed me for the first time in life this supposedly autumn-only fungus, Philiota limonella, or yellow philiota. They're gregarious and saprobic (meaning they feed on dead wood) and their toast-colored scales also look to me like the cheese broiled on top of a pizza or tuna casserole, or that drips from a grilled-cheese sandwich. That shows you where my mind is at. These are not edible. I picked one to look beneath its cap so I could do a better mushroom I.D. As usual, if I've misidentified, please let me know.
