Remember when I showed you the hidden treasures in my tiny front yard? It appears that some of the mushroom statuary are mushroom decoys.
Do Mushroom Decoys Attract Real Mushrooms?
No, not really. But it was surprising that among all the garden-mushroom statuary we have in our little front yard, that real mushrooms would sprout. And such dramatic mushrooms too!
From what Thaddeus tells me, these are Cholorphyllum-Molybdites (or Green-Spored Lepiota). Definitely NOT for consumption (by human or pet). They are known for their outer, “shaggy”, parasol shape. And how dramatically large they can be. The spores are a greenish color.
And the nice part is my homeowners association can’t fine me for putting them in my front garden!
I’m still working on the Liquified Shawl.
Surprisingly, I’m still liking it a lot more than what I’d expected. I thought it would be somewhat ordinary looking, but it’s turning out to be anything but that.
Here’s a close-up of the short-row-shaped section in the center of the shawl.
And a close-up of the normal fabric.
Just garter stitch. But it gives a nice overall look. And the fabric is really nice.
I’m hopeful to finish it this week…I have a new project I’m itching to start. More about that on Wednesday.
