Parasols by the Post Office

from Chris

I don’t know much about wild mushrooms, but I find them fascinating because of the wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors they come in.

These ones, which sprung up near the Post Office, are called parasol mushrooms:

The caps on the big ones are each as wide as my spread-out hand. They have gills underneath, which places them in a category of fungi called “gilled mushrooms” (creative, huh?).
