Welcome to November

 Last Thursday morning I had to take a detour due to a paving project on Meadow Valley Road.  It was a lucky detour as I came across a great patch of Shaggy Mane fungi at the side of Jackson Street.  Here a half dozen views.  Tomorrow morning I'll check whether they're still there.  When their time comes, they tend to melt into a pile of black goo.  I've also heard that they deteriorate very quickly after being picked, so if you want to dine on them, better bring along a little camp stove and a frying pan.  I'm a mushroom coward, so I only eat the ones sold in stores.
