These gorgeous mushrooms were growing from the side of a tree along a busy city street in the town where I work. I spotted them on my way home and did not have my camera with me (When will I learn). I drove 15 miles home, and asked Joey if he wanted to take a road trip with me. He of course wanted to know where, and when I told him I needed to go back into town and get some pictures of some cool mushrooms that I spotted on my way home. He of course thought I was nuts, but he agreed to ride along. I had never seen anything quite like these before, they were growing up the side of the tree like stair steps. Their flesh was very bright white, and they had gorgeous "gills" on the underside. While I was busy snapping photos, a couple out for an evening walk stopped and hollered from across the street "If you hadn't of been taking pictures, we would have never noticed them".
It just goes to show that each of us should slow down and look at what is around us, you never know just exactly what you will discover.
