This humidity, combined with this spring’s warm rains makes the perfect conditions for mushrooms to appear, seemingly out of nowhere (like fairies). This is when they pop, and swell to about twice their normal size: If you’re lucky enough to find them. While I was busy cranking out my 33 pages (done, thank you very much), the boys found these beauties at the lake house.
For some of you, I realize, this best shot photo of these large Yellow Sponge Mushrooms does not make your mouth water, or your heart flutter. To those of you, I can only say “thank you.” Because, that just leaves more for the rest of us.
Rather than frying them up and eating them on the spot, those men in my life brought all the mushrooms they found back home to share them with me. When someone brings even one of these mushrooms back to you, it is an honor. And they were delectable.
