More mushroom madness in New Brunswick

23 Sep

Andrea and I found such a riot of mushrooms while tromping through the woods at her cottage that I may be posting about them till spring!  I spent some time tonight trying to identify a few more of the many mushrooms we photographed.  Surprisingly, some of the hardest to identify are some of the most distinctive.  Do you have any idea how many little orange mushrooms there are out there?

Here is my latest stab at identifications:

poss KING BOLETE - BOLETUS EDULIS

KING BOLETE – BOLETUS EDULIS

poss KING BOLETE - BOLETUS EDULIS 3

I’m not completely sure of this one, but if it is the king, it is supposed to be yummy.

poss RAMARIOPSIS LAETICOLOR (2)

I have found that once you get interested in hunting and identifying something in nature, be it mushrooms or trees or wildflowers, you begin to see things that you never noticed before.  A whole new world opens up and your senses become heightened.  A simple walk through the woods becomes much more interesting and even exciting – when you find something new and different.

I have lots more mushrooms from New Brunswick, but I’ll save them for another post.

Mushrooms at Andrea’s cottage

31 Aug

In a moist, loamy corner of New Brunswick, Andrea and Ugo’s cottage is perched on stilts, overlooking a stony, sandy beach. On a misty afternoon, Andrea and I took “the pack” on an adventure walk through the forest surrounding the cottage. As we walked on the soft bedding of the regenerating decay of the forest floor, I noticed a wide range of mushrooms. Here is a small sampling…actually it is as many as I have been able to identify to date. I am probably wrong on my identification of a few…more to come.
