My dad lives in Suffield, Connecticut which is rapidly developing former farm town suburb of both Springfield, Massachusetts and Hartford. These mushrooms (Marasmius sp. ?) are growing from the stump of recently removed maple tree.


At the back of his yard is a swampy area, where water drains on its way to the nearby Connecticut River. Jewelweed is starting to pass from flower to exploding pod back there ("Too soon!" I hear Alexis cry out.)


I found these little guys on a stick. What are they?? They look like slime mold sporangia to me. Possibly Leocarpus fragilis? I love them.
