My old Elm Tree trunk always seems to have a new interesting mushroom growing on it.  The elm tree was lost to Dutch Elm Disease several years ago now and the city removed it to prevent spreading the disease. I still have two huge Elm Trees in my yard, but there had been four when I bought the house many years ago.

I have put pictures of some of the mushroom from other years in here and you can find them by using the search feature and entering mushroom.  This one is similar to one another year, but not exactly.  And it looks like there is another kind that grows in the fall.


I know nothing about mushrooms and will end up putting this one in the next garbage pickup.

If you notice the little flower behind the mushroom, that is the Creeping Charlie week that keep trying to take over my back yard.  I can’t use weed killer there because Chester spends so  much time in the yard – not that most weed killers seem to work with it anyway.

Here is a close up of it.

There were no critters, other than several bunnies, to be seen on our walk yesterday.  There were even more of the long boats with students on the Red River though.  It was cloudy and a bit foggy when Chester and I walked, so it wouldn’t have made much of a picture.

So far on Africam today, we have seen Lion, Elephant, Nyala, Waterbuck, Porcupine, Warthog, Impala, Cape Buffalo, Hamerkop, Zebra, Helmeted Guinea Fowls, Black Eagle, Red-billed Oxpecker, Wildebeest, Kudu, Cape Turtle Dove, Spotted Hyaena, Grey  Duiker, Black-backed Jackal and White-tailed Mongoose.  Click here to see all of the pictures from May 24.
