Mushrooms in Edwin Warner Park

We saw some giant puffball mushrooms in Edwin Warner Park this afternoon. They were the size of bowling bowls or pumpkins. I’ve never seen mushrooms this large in my life. The mushrooms were off the paths and in dark areas of the park. I had to photograph them from above through the brush, as I didn’t want to disturb them.

Today was a perfect fall day to be walking in the park. The temperature was in the 50s, and the sun was shining. Unfortunately, our fall colors aren’t very pretty this year because of the dry weather we’ve had.

    Given the prevalence of manure in our fields, I often see ‘shrooms sprouting from decaying piles of turds. I lack the courage to experiment with them!
