Mushrooms in the yard...

While looking in the garden yesterday, I noticed that some mushrooms were growing in one section that receives partial sun, and was surprised because we don't normally see mushrooms growing out there. We're no expert in mushrooms (or fungi) so we have not been able to identify the exact type of mushrooms, but they look interesting. The past few weeks have been pretty wet around here and the sunshine just returned yesterday so these mushrooms probably won't be around for much longer. In parts of Southeastern Minnesota the flooding isn't as bad as Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Iowa but there are certain towns that have received their own share of flooding around here. If the wet weather continues I'm sure we'll be in store for some more mushrooms, but we'll keep our fingers crossed that we won't have any flooding around here.
