DEADLINE POSTPONED TIL THE END OF SANDY (AKA FRANKENCANE OR FRANKENSTORM)….NEW DEADLINE WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON….BE SAFE EVERYBODY! The summer drought here in New England left little hope of producing the bouquet of wild mushrooms that typically add interest to the forest floor once the leaves take to releasing their grip on deciduous branches. And yet a number of fans requested a mushroom photo contest. Leave it to New England to swamp us this fall with enough wood rotting rain to salvage the contest. What’s the weather like in your area? Damp enough to make mushrooms pop??
“Mushrooms are like men–the bad most closely counterfeit the good.”
Happily nestled between dung and decay, mushrooms make this the perfect Halloween contest. Go find this zombie growth – it eats the dead and is itself barely alive. Death becomes them.
“Love is like a poisonous mushroom, you don’t know if it is the real thing until it is too late.” Source Unknown
