fungi

look at the size of the mushrooms on this tree! every time i pass by, they seem bigger with more protuberance. i wonder if they ever get heavy enough to fall off. I wonder if they're edible. i wonder if chipmunks ever stand on them and watch the world go by.

We used to harvest these at the lake house and scratch our names into the undersides along with the date. We have had them perched over the doorways in all the island houses for generations. On your tree, they look like natural "steps" - or patios for pixies...
