The Elves Had a Party: 2011

mushrooms growing out of table.

Mushroom Tables

And they left behind quite a mess on my picnic table—their table and chairs, and this orange dust all over the place. Who knows what those elves were up to?!

[I knew my table was slowly rotting away under the trees, as it has been for about 15 years, but growing mushrooms is going a little too far!]

  2. From the little thumbnail on FB, I couldn’t tell what the elfin folk had been up to…oh yes, fungi love rotting wood.

  3. Mushrooms growing out of a table sounds very cool, when you enough of them to pick from the table let me know and I’ll be there!

      • Aww! It’s funny because today outside my house I found a small white mushroom and a small hole..but whatever creature dig it up/was going to hide it didn’t seem to finish the job.
