Header Competition # 16 - Mushrooms/Fungi

The header theme this week by Darla from Florida and is "Mushrooms/Fungi". Mac,TomDarla and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. I have a new candidate for the contest, it is Martha at Menagerie from Florida. She will be posting for a chance to join the group.


I had to go to archives because snow and mushrooms don't exist together. These one were from the yard. They stay close together for protection.

This one reminds me of a Dr. Seuss book. "Would you eat them in a tree", yes mushrooms do grow in a tree Sam-I-Am"


This is my fairy ring mushroom, very colorful, I expect to see a Leprechaun around here..

This is such a colorful mushroom, I almost chose it.


This one was from the Kent Bog. It is not as colorful but certainly has a lot of earth tones. Perfect place to grow mushrooms don't you think.

The one I chose combines my love of animals with with the mushrooms it loves. I hope you enjoy my choice of the Eastern Gray Squirrels dinner.

Excellent choice for the header and a great reminder to keep the wildlife well fed. You have a stunning selection of Fungi for us here.... I am reminded of one or two we have over here in your pictures.

Those are some great mushroom photos. They are so colorful and I haven't seen some of those shapes. I wish the grass was green like that right now.

I LOVE your fairy ring and your header is cuter than cute. This contest is a little disheartening because I don't want this header to go away... but I didn't want last week's to go away either.
