Week In Focus #39

The Immortal Mushroom

This is #39 of a weekly Photo Challenge that I set myself – there is no particular theme. The idea behind the challenge is to get myself outside into the Cumbrian countryside, at least once a week.

  • This week’s photo of a crop of wild mushrooms was taken on a local section of Hadrian’s Cycleway, in West Cumbria.

Mushroom Facts:

  1. The Armillaria bulbosa mushroom can grow as big as the Blue Whale
  2. Egyptians considered Mushrooms the plant of immortality.
  3. Mushrooms are known as the meat of the vegetable world.
  4. People who eat wild mushrooms are called Mycophagists.
  5. Over 30 species of Mushroom glow in the dark.
