  2. It looks like the tree has a fancy skirt on but when you think about it, fungus is kind of scary stuff in all of it's many forms.

  9. Nice angles of the mushrooms. The way they look and crinkle makes me think of crispy bacon. I wonder if they're edible.

    1. I've lived in the place 28 years and the tree was old then, think it could be part of an old orchard that was here.
