Just When You Thought I Was Done. . .

with *all* of the fungus photos, I found another cool fungus on my Silver Maple tree.

It looks like there’s two different types of fungus. This tree is going to have to go sometime soon. I’m trying to make it last as long as I can because it will leave a major gap in my front yard.
There are tons of cones on the Norway Spruces. 06Nov2006-005

And my Tansy is still blossoming!

These photos were taken on Monday when it was warm and sunny. Today was dark and stormy and I spent it over in Syracuse volunteering at OHA – editing photos to put on their website – some really cool old photos.

    Thank you Endment! The tansy is in a protected area – I don’t expect it will last much longer, but I’m enjoying it’s beauty while it lasts!

    Tansies are such pretty flowers! Sandy at gardenpath posted pics of some a while ago and I’ve been looking for them since. Do they grow wild or have you planted them as seeds?

    Regarding your interest in fungi, you might like a look at the Niches blog. Wayne is a true botanist and often posts mushroom stuff.

    Hope the link works.

    Laura – I got mine from my Mom’s plant – if I remember correctly she got hers as a plant. I get most of my herb plants from richters.com
    Ohhh, another plant blog to read – thank you. Now I have to figure out how you added a link in the comments section!

    That fungus looks like toasted marshmallow fluff!
    FYI: If that tree isn’t in any danger of falling on your house, consider keeping it up, or at least leave a “snag” by cutting off the branches and leaving the trunk. Since you are a “new” birder, it would be a good way to provide a home for woodpeckers (or screech owls!)

    Susan – Thanks for the tip – the Silver Maple is right near my home. I do see woodpeckers on the tree all of the time. I’m sad about it.

    Those cones are amazing! It’s too bad you have to take down that silver maple, but you have to keep your house safe.

    Hi Lynne – I’m really sad about the Silver Maple – I’m trying to figure out the best time of year for nature to take it down. I bought the house because I love the trees around the house.
