Day 81 - Fungus Amongus


The hubs came up with the title of this one. lol I didn't know that mushrooms were actually the "fleshy spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus" (according to wikipedia). Gross! Bet you will never view mushrooms the same way again. Just one of the many growing things in our apartment complex. I'm really having to get creative since the only place I can take my daughter to play right now is right outside till she's all better.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. She's been having some really rough nights with all the coughing.

Great title and beautiful shot. I knew about the fungus part, but eat them anyway.

Lisa said...

I feel for your baby girl! I know what she's going through. My mom says the phrase "There's a fungus amungus" sometimes, so your title made me smile.

Great photo! And, no, I will never look a mushrooms the same way again. :)

My son recently had a cough that hung on for weeks, but he seems to finally be over it. Hang in there ... the end is coming. Hopefully sooner than later.

I love that your husband is involved with your blog too. I find mine asking if something is going to be my picture for the day or telling people about the project and giving them the address, so it makes me happy to know that he "gets" what I'm doing and feels some connection with it too. BTW, tell him it's a cute title.

We've got these all over our backyard. I'm always worried my dogs are going to eat them. I love your composition and use of negative space. Great job. You inspire me to get my butt in gear and make more interesting pictures. :) Great job!
