A feast of fungi has appeared in Arthurs Seat State Park. My recent wanderings through the forest have uncovered a smorgasbord of flat and frilly fungal delights.
I found fairy lights and flapjacks. And a host of weird and wonderful foamy bursts of orange and yellow, erupting out of the ground as though they couldn’t stop. If you fancy taking a look, you can check out my photos below, and if you live in the area, go and visit Seawinds Gardens, Purves Road, Arthurs Seat. From there you can walk into the forest of Arthurs Seat State Park and discover some funky, fleshy fungi for yourself.
These are my all time favourites. They were photographed in the grounds at Seawinds Garden, so they were not technically in the forest. Here is a selection of some dainty little features I did find in the forest.
Ok, so this one is also a more exotic species that was not in the ecological precinct of the forest, but was found in Seawinds Gardens, still technically inside Arthurs Seat State Park. The photos below, are likewise in the Gardens.
I hope your fascination with fungi runs the same course as mine, and that you enjoyed feasting your eyes upon them!
