    Hey peasant, don't knock us empresses, even the retarded ones (they happen to be much fun). I did check those shrooms last spotted growing near a sectioned log I'm using as a step into the second garage. Those have since withered but new ones sprouted a few feet to the other side. Currently unsure of ID and no time to research all nor search the property for others; Colonel's various appointments with his specialists continue to take precedence this week (two just today). Sunny and clear, we are to hit a beautiful 81°F today (first 80s day thus far/my kind of weather), but rains are expected to arrive here tomorrow afternoon or night. More shrooms to follow. Hopefully you manage to feel mobile yourself fairly soon.

    I always know when she shows up because some one is upset. Put her on ignore.

    Yes, all snowflakes, ignore is your friend.

    Meanwhile, I plucked one shroom for closer look and now believe it to be Coprinellus micaceus; however, I have a spore print in the process for confirmation. Even if correct, I'm still not eating it, and that's a fact!

    Picked another 6 today in Jefferson. All of them came from patches I picked or checked yesterday. I’m guessing by their size they were there yesterday but just not big enough for me to see.

    Does anyone know what these shrooms are called and are they edible?

    Few pics from today. You can see where the frost burnt them. Woods is dry. Next rain it will be wide open.

    Looks quite like what I picked! :)

    Fungus Fact Friday on Tuesday!
    I figure that since they constantly change the genera, I, the Empress Regnant, can change the day of the fun facts! Ha!

    I have yet to check my spore print (too tired plus wish to give it overnight), but when I took it noticed the inky having started to begin upon the chosen one. I expect the spores to drop black.

    Spores appeared to be a light brown, while the shroom itself disintegrated into black; thereby I am now intrigued. Due to such, I shall be picking a few more and making additional prints, before the rains move in today, because I could still almost swear that I was correct with my first thought and for multiple reasons. I wish that I had a microcope. Perhaps the county extension office has one (doubtful). The school has one, if not, and surely the WMA.

    I briefly checked them this morning, noticing the last bundle changed rather quickly. A new bundle has since appeared, and it most certainly has the little crystal look to the caps, like having been sprinkled with salt.
    Curiosity abounds, but no time remains to further mess with all.

    Good sign when they are bloomed.
