Geigers, November 13:
Both pictures are of the same mushroom. I dug it up today.
There was a rotten tap root that broke off when I dug it up. The base has started to
collapse, most likely near its life cycle.
Rebecca added a bit of Sake to the Chanterelles. I like them with just butter or the Sake. Not much difference to me.
We got the Elvin Saddles popping up in our lawn also. The pictures were all taken in the woods and later I saw three in the lawn. The one picture of the grey one makes a good wall paper picture.
The last picture is a close-up of a Pseudoscorpion
on a Chanterelle.
The Amanita sounds more like the A smithiana now.
The blue-green mushroom looks like a
odora var. pacificus. It should have had the distinctive
but pleasant odor of anise.
