I had a feeling that the rain last week would make a few fungi shout for joy. I think these are oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus).
But I'm not sure enough to try to eat them.
Even though there are so many.
And they look so tasty.
Everything I know about mushrooms is from books. The only one I'd be confident enough to eat would be a morel. And I never seem to find more than one of those at a time, so I just leave them and hope they'll make more.
People in Europe gather wild mushrooms all the time, but I've never had anyone here (in the south) tell me that they do.
