Invasion of the Mushrooms!

The weather this fall must be perfect for fungus! We had a long dry spell, followed by warmish days with record high night time temperatures, followed by copious amounts of rain. Now there mushrooms are everywhere – just look down and you’ll see them. All of these photos were taken in my south Seattle neighborhood.

I don’t have the experience or training to identify the mushrooms in this post. Please don’t forage and eat mushrooms unless you know what you’re doing. Some are highly toxic.

Were you wondering what is eating these? I was because I think they are the poisonous Amanita Muscaria mushrooms.
