Bracket fungi - Elizabeth Smith

Bracket fungi, originally uploaded by Elizabeth Smith.

Bracket fungi

These little shelf or bracket fungi were nestled at the base of a Sea Grape tree. It seems that all of the mushrooms I’ve seen lately remind me of food – these were the most delectable shade of caramel!

The ground is finally drying out after our September rains. We’ve been enduring a heat wave, breaking records yesterday and today with temperatures in the middle 90’s. It’s been a long summer, and we’re ready for a change.
