Picture of the day - September 19, 2006

What A Mushroom!

The largest mushroom I've ever seen.

Late this afternoon, Cheria and I got a call from my sister-in-law Linda about a humongous mushroom they had found growing in the bushes alongside their driveway. She told us that it was a real whopper and that she would like for us to stop by and take a picture of it. Well, I've seen several unusually large mushrooms this year so I didn't really expect to see anything that would knock my socks off. But what I found when I got there amazed me...

Lying there in the bushes was a mushroom the likes of which I had never seen in my entire life. It was easily the size of a large beach ball! Realizing that it would be very difficult for a photograph to capture an accurate perspective on just how big that thing was, I began looking around for some type of common object to place beside it. I saw a basketball lying nearby so I grabbed it and placed it next to the mushroom, then Cheria and I both began taking pictures. The result is the "Picture Of The Day". And yes, that really is a full-size basketball sitting next to that whopper of a mushroom!

Toadstools growing in our yard.It must be a banner year for mushrooms because our yard is plumb full of them (see the picture at right).

We have broad, flat ones, round ones and perfectly shaped umbrella-style toadstools, and all at sizes much larger than I'm used to seeing. But the monster we saw this afternoon beats anything I have ever seen!

Junior and Linda's garden always produces some of the biggest vegetables in the neighborhood, so I guess it's only fair that they end up with the largest mushroom as well!
