I’ve been going through my phone’s photo album and realized that, not only do I take quadruplicate shots, I take so many pictures of odd, random stuff 🤔 Do you do this too?
Most of the time I do it because it sparks an inspiration for a blog post … but then I never get around to writing about it.
I figured before I delete all this ‘junk’, why not use it for its intended purpose and maybe learn a few things along the way! 😁 (Nifty, eh?)
And so this week’s entry is the puffy puffball mushroom. Ta-daaaah!
I remember coming out the front door one day and exclaiming to my daughter “there are brains on our lawn!” because it was the first time I had ever seen such ‘growth’ 😄
In making this blogpost I’ve found out that these are called puffballs (mayhaps Calvatia craniformis). Puffballs vary in size from 3″ in diameter to the size of a dog. Some puffballs are edible, one way to identify these is to slice them open and see if the flesh is white and solid. However, it’s best to consult a professional shroom connoisseur to avoid death by accidental shroom poisoning. 😨😨
When the puffball matures and is ready to spew its spores out into the world for the continuance of its species, it will turn brown and look like turd 💩
For our perusal, I have diligently documented this as well! 🤗
And this is our odd-photo prompt of the week, the puffball mushroom 🙌
