Now that we've had lots of damp, hot weather the fungi are sprouting up on the lawn. I have no idea what kind of mushroom this is but it's the first in a series of mushrooms I've been painting. Maybe we have one of those field guides around--"Mushrooms of New England"--or something like that. I don't plan to eat any of these as I know the perils of eating the wrong mushroom. Just ask Alice.
