bday

Today’s my birthday! I pretend this is my birthday cake and the moss thingiesΒ sporophytes are the candles. (Yes, quite many candles…..)

Let’s stay in gnomeland! Here’s today’s mushroom picture:

  5. Oh, Happy Birthday! You are right, they look just like lit candles blown by the wind. The mushroom photo is very good.

  10. Happy Birthday! I love your mushroom series! And your ‘birthday candles’ are called sporophytes, I believe, with the little bit on top the capsule.

  15. Thanks for liking my blog. And here’s wishing you a very happy birthday. I see that you are just a “spring chicken.” This is an old adage of some sort that means you are young. Anyway, I like this blog a lot. I just had to look up mushrooms in Google for I have forgotten more than I ever learned in biology. Just at the mere chance that someone is interested- mushrooms are dispersed by wind, rain, animals, or by its own projection of shooting the spores as high as 6 feet and as far away as 8 feet. (some species) I vaguely thought that is how mushrooms manage to populate is various areas. This info is very brief and not complete. My point is that your blog is very nice and it is educational as well as being pretty. Your photography is really good. I have subscribed.

    Happy Birthday! Are those “candles” called “Redcoats”? Kathy Phelps would definitely know what they are called.
