Being born in Autumn, it is definetely my season of choice: the smell, the changing colors, the stormy weather and last but not least the beautiful fungi. In the past 25 years I have never succeeded to get the garden fully cleaned and the fungi have gratefully taken advantage of that inability. All shown fungi showed up at some point in time in our garden; with exception of the Fly Agaric, which is included because of the nursery rhyme I did sing numerous times.
I have matched fungi to their names to my best ability; any additions are welcomed.
The White Elfin Saddle is expanding with passing years and especially the vertile soil in the front garden is providing the right conditions for this nice Helvella. The Slate Greay variation is a little bit less numerous.
Turkey Tail / Trametes versicolor
The Turkey Tail is probably one of the most commonly known polypore mushrooms in the world. A mushroom that can be found throughout the year and being a saprophyt it builds it cells by digesting their food externally and then absorbing the products. They are found on dead and decomposing matter such as dead wood. Turkey Tails are found in many different colors.
