There has been so much rain this summer. Unusual for Ontario but I have heard the weather is acting strange in many places. We are normally into heat waves with high humidity. The kind of weather that makes you want to run to the cottage and go swimming every weekend. I will always want to run to the cottage but haven't even been in the water this year. It is about 10 degrees cooler than normal. In our great West Canada they are enjoying an unusually hot summer with out rain. Seems like we have gotten our weather reversed!

I have noticed with the change of weather an abundance of mushrooms are growing on my lawn. Since it is usually very hot, mushrooms don't tend to develope.
Some species I have never seen before!

Some are more of a fungus than mushroom.

This one was glistening with the morning dew.

These look yummy ! At least something thinks so as they have been nibbled on.
There are a patches of mushrooms, not just a few here and there, but dispersed throughout my lawn. Never witnessed this before. Maybe I should get a book on Mushroom and Fungus and prepare for the changes with global warming cooling?

  2. They are pretty to look at, but I don't like eating them. I have been dismayed at our change of climate. Over a period of several years we have become drier.
