Growing up

Long shot

“Advice is like mushrooms. The wrong kind can prove fatal” Charles E McKenzie

Have you noticed anything else apart from the wide tree trunk and thick roots being exposed before they enter the earth below?

I shall tell.

In between the tree roots, you can notice those tiny white mushrooms, some are about to grow and some are already grown.

When you notice growing mushrooms on a tree trunk or root, is it a good sign or a bad sign?

I understand that it’s a bad sign, probably the tree is going to die.

The innocent-looking Mushroom can be lethal to this gigantic tree as time passes.

“Nature for me is raw and dangerous and difficult and beautiful and unnerving” Andy Goldsworthy

    Mushrooms are so interesting. I’ve never seen that kind before. I live on Canada’s Pacific coast, and the forest areas around here have a lot of different mushroom species growing.
