Late August

White Coral Jelly Fungus are emerging everywhere! I don't remember ever seeing this species before, but this year our woods seem to be producing a bumper crop.

The photo below shows the mushroom's color much more realistically then in the previous post (better lighting).
Tremella reticulata
 Lobster mushrooms result from one fungus "infecting" another causing it to become bright orange and grow in unusual shapes.

Our wet, cool summer seems to be favoring hop growth. The hop flowers are the largest I have ever seen, at least 1.25 inches in length.
