If I did not know how wild mushrooms could kill me, if I ate them, I might have taken these beauties into my kitchen and stuffed and baked them..  
Look how Big they are.
When we go through weeks of rain as we have this past few months, the wild mushrooms usually take over my lawn.


 There I was, to the amusement of my neighbors, in the grass when the sun first came up, to get a few shots of these really beautiful, perfectly formed, Mushrooms!


  My reasons for being out at the crack of dawn was to inspect my front steps and walk way.
A Tree root has grown to the point of moving my walk way out of shape and soon someone was  going to trip and fall.  Then I'll have to pay for them to mend their broken leg!


 While I waited for the lawn guys to arrive to remove the entire sidewalk, I pulled all the planting in the space, then I measured the area for brand new paver's to not only replace the sidewalk, but to create a front patio of sorts.  One I can put a bench or a white wooden rocker, foot stool and a glass of Ice Tea,  while I sit outside and work on my blog or read.  This is the space that will be my next project.

I feel like "Ma" on the Golden Girls,,, 
Picture this, Sicily 2011.... Beautiful terra cotta pavers in a really nice design covering the entire area.  No dirt or plants of any kind in the ground  (well, some really nice potted plants of course),  to create a front patio of sorts..
A window box? 
That is a decision for another time?

Good bye ugly, wet, dirty front!
And NO, I did not cook those really beautiful Mushrooms!
To be continued!

I wouldn't know the difference between poisonous mushrooms and the nonlethal ones, but I'm safe because I don't even like the edible ones, lol.

Your new patio area is going to be wonderful, can't wait to see the progress on it.

I love photographing mushrooms. These are beauties!

I have often thought of paving over the front lawn, but I am not too fond of the view if I were to have a patio there.

Hi Sandy,

Those are some huge mushrooms you have! I hope your sidewalk project is going well.

When I was a little girl my grandma used to tell us that mushrooms in the yard were umbrellas for fairies...I suppose it was to keep us away from them...but I see those umbrellas in some of your pictures!!

It's a shame that all mushrooms aren't edible - but at least they are decoarative...
