The Sunshine Observer: SO… V:80
This volume of the SO is dedicated to the fungus among us. Today I walked around the property with the intention of snapping a few pic’s of mushrooms and found a magical kingdom of at least 20 varieties. Most are hidden blending into the landscape. All it took was pausing to look. Some are beautifully formed, some look like dog puke. There was 1 lone blue mushroom with a fuzzy stem, possibly Stropharia caerulea.
The Fungi kingdom has between 2.2 million and 3.8 million species. Did you know fungi are genetically more closely related to animals than to plants?
I created a fungus album, all taken on Sunshine Lane. There is 1 added photo from today that is not a fungus, it is gross looking, and has a tell-tale sign… 10 points for identifying it.
Watch the movie “Fantastic Fungi” It really is fantastic.
Onto our 5-minute meditation following the phases of the Moon.
The waxing moon increases in light moving toward Gibbous.
Be here now.
Pay attention to your breath.
With each breath give thanks to your body from your toes to our head.
