North Texas had a good rain fall this year. We like to walk across the fields and explore the forest and gullies after a rain when mushrooms are springing up in many varieties. I especially like to find them growing in my yard and garden because it means that there is plenty of decaying matter in my soil and mushrooms are part of the decaying process. They then release spores. Spores act like seeds and they sprout more mushrooms. This is good for plant life.
This photo was taken a month or two ago after a good long rain. The fields were full of so many mushrooms. Some get knocked over by wind, by the horses as they walk by, or by the dog as she races ahead of us.
