Fungi and lichen in my garden
Are there any mycologists out there who can help with identifying any of these fungi that are growing in my garden? We had some really good rain a month or so ago, and every shady nook seems to have its own community of fungi. Even the algae are looking particularly healthy. It is most heartening to see this amount of activity amongst these plant forms. I used to view fungi somewhat askance, but their forms and colours are now a never-ending source of delight. Best of all, their presence assures me that nature is alive and busy on my little piece of earth.
