Mushrooms in autumn-tree fungi pictures

On my quick Sunday walk I found this crop of stump mushrooms in the nearby woods.
I don't know much about mushrooms, they are just beautiful photo subjects for me, a typical autumnal scene.
We often see fungi growing on the ground or on the side of trees.Tree mushroom-shelf fungi

Here is an old tree with fungi growing on it's sides. These shelf or bracket fungi have a really sculptural appearance.
They are slowly consuming this dead stump, a beautiful example of the rhythm of life.

"In autumn, the return to unity begins - there is a gentle melancholy in autumn, a peace not found in spring, in which all things seem to return to the one Life of God from which they came."
Dr. J. J. Van Der Leeuw - Fire of creation.

Have a look at this stump covered with moss and mushrooms.

Funky fungi!

Thanks for coming by my blog :) I actually deal with a lot of health problems, so instead of spending my day working a job, I get to spend it watching tv and working on different project, that's why I get so much done :)

Those mushrooms really are cute! Like little villages clinging to the hillside. So far it is still too dry around here so no 'shrooms! Thanks for visiting my blog...
