Fairy Playground

Sometimes I think my husband believes I’m crazy by how excited I get when I see a decaying tree trunk full of perfectly formed sprouting mushrooms. I think they’re absolutely adorable, and I mustn’t be the only one. I can see why people have often drawn fairies sitting atop mushrooms and toadstools. They seem like the perfect playground for teeny fairies to bounce across, and shelter under when it rains.

Mushrooms are also a perfect example of how death gives rise to new life. In the rainforest, every time a tree dies it gives life to millions of other organisms and its legacy lives on. I hope some of you share my delight in photographing mushrooms, and if so, please share a link to your photos, as I would love to see them!

    1. Thank you Margaret, I would love to see some of your photos. I could spend all day in the forest and discover new things, its amazing what you can really find. So many things that other people would just miss, and don’t appreciate.

    1. Welcome Eris,
      Thank you for your comment. I see that your blog has also included some mushrooms, and I loved reading your post titled “Getting Acquainted: Mushrooms.” I personally have had some beautiful little mushroom families (white and canary yellow ones) make a home in my pot plants. They almost never cause any damage to the plant itself, and disappear again in their own time. I look forward to exploring your blog some more!
