Folks, Ol’ Wally is feelin’ the heat these days, so this old squirrel took himself off to a shady woods spot. I noticed something…spotty about a pile of wood chips dumped from a recent tree cutting.
Now, forgive me if this isn’t your idea of water, but on a hot summer’s day you know these mushrooms are only sprouting because they did find water. And apparently they didn’t all sprout at the same time, because as you will see, they mushrooms are at different growth stages, from just sprouting to dying. Now I can’t say if the reason for this was just random, or if it had anything to do with shade versus sun or dry versus wetter areas of the pile. But I did find the different stages to be interesting.
Have a cool day!
