Fungi Fascination

Those of you who have ever been out in nature with me know that I have a thing for mushrooms. I also like lichens and moss, but mushrooms are just lovely to me. There's just something about them. Maybe it's the delicate gills on the underside, or the fact that their lives are so transient. Whatever it is, I always try and take a picture if I find some good ones.

There was a short segment about the Northeast Mycological Federation Foray on NPR's Science Friday which just tickled me pink.  I would thoroughly enjoy searching for mushrooms in the forests! Even better, I would love to be out hunting for truffles!
