We may not have many flowers or decorative bushes in our garden, but there is no shortage of moss, lichens or mushrooms. I took a walk around the whole garden last Sunday, and once again today, and counted twelve different kinds of mushrooms large enough to be noticed. I’m sure there are less eye-catching ones that I’ve missed.

We have mushrooms that look like mushrooms are supposed to, and mushrooms that look like apricots.
We have shaggy mushrooms… …and we have velvety mushrooms.
We have small brown slimy mushrooms… …that do their best to take over the whole garden.
We have mushrooms growing on trees… …and we have poisonous toadstools.

The one thing we don’t seem to have is edible mushrooms.
