Appreciation for fungi

I love rainy and wintery weather and all the beautiful things that come with it.

I found these cute mushrooms on campus recently. It seemed appropriate that the area I found them was near the Biology department and completely unassuming.

I feel like that’s fungi all over – they provide amazing and unique services to ecosystems, but they have these non-extravagant, unassuming, ‘peaceful’ protrusions above the surface. And this is the only part of them we can see as we walk on by.

I would never have seen them if I wasn’t watching where I was walking because of the rain.
