Yesterday was an amazing day for a walk.

I entered the woods to gather natural supplies to dress a birdhouse I had, only to stumble upon mushrooms, plenty of them.  I have traveled the woods behind my house for years and have never seen so many toadstools.  Because of the wet summer we've had, they are abundant.

I had to go back to the house, grab the camera and start shooting.  I new there were many shapes, sizes and colors, yet, I had no idea just how many varieties lived in my woods.  Their names I am not familiar with but that's okay, because I like to name them myself.

The earthy smells were delightful and it was truly an enjoyable part of my day.

I hope you enjoy them. I just think they are a really cool part of nature!
