Mushroom Hunting

Actually no hunting was involved.  We’ve had 7 straight days of rain and I managed to slip in a walk at the park between downpours.  Mushrooms were everywhere!  Here’s a few of the varieties I found.

Isn’t mother nature awesome?

So why do mushrooms grow in a circular pattern?  They don’t seem to “patch” it like grass or weeds but rather grow in an arc.  Can someone explain this to me?

Now all we need is a fairy!
