Lawn mushroom


Leucoagaricus leucothites is it's name and it's really a rather ordinary mushroom. But when I spotted a little troop of them in a neighbor's lawn this evening it was a big event for me because it's been sooooo long since there have been mushrooms fruiting in Santa Rosa, what with too little rain last winter and the usual (long) dry summer. When these plain, white mushrooms start sprouting up in lawns around town it's a promise of fun to come!
