Turkey Tail

 On November 19, I've captured these photos of the Turkey Tail growing on decomposing wood in our garden.

Lovely Turkey Tail growing on this piece of wood.
Over the past couple of years we have had to cut down quite some trees and this is how toadstools naturally decompose the wood.
A better closeup picture...

      Well, nature is full of surprises when it completes its cycle of life!
      Toadstools are the very last one in that cycle and they look beautiful.

  2. Nature is wonderful. If it was not for mushrooms we would be up to our neck in dead wood.

    I worked with dead wood years ago. They got promoted.

    God bless.

    1. Dearest Victor,
      Yes, toadstools can be very efficient in decomposing dead wood.
      We sure can't win from them...

  3. Belle foto,peccato che sia un fungo così dannoso.

    1. Cara Olga,
      No, quei funghi velenosi non sono assolutamente dannosi ma molto utili.
      Possono digerire il legno morto ciò che nessun altro essere vivente può fare. Quindi sono alla fine del ciclo di vita in natura, aiutando a decomporre il legno morto.
      Abbracci,
      Mariette

      Their name giving is genial as they resemble a turkey tail so perfectly!
      Nature is full of little miracles—if we only have an eye for it.

      They sure are and in general they seem to be well colonized on the dead wood's pieces.

  8. Hi, Mariette and Pieter!
    When I read the title, I thought you had turkeys running around your property in the night and you had found their trails!!! XD
    Well, this proves that one is always learning!
    Lost of higs!

    1. Dearest Paula,
      Well, in front of the greenhouse, near the creek, I've seen only ONCE a life turkey!
      But we're surrounded by woods—no doubt they're hiding somewhere.
      Maybe the kitties know more about all our residents on the 1.2 hectare property and don't forget the adjacent properties.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      About live turkeys, I have to say they are a bird I respect too much, to be around them (I'm scared of them!)!!!
      :P

  12. It's curious how when I see mushrooms in nature, I remember you. Just a few days ago I went for a walk in a nearby mountain and found a lot of wild mushrooms. I didn't even touch them because I don't know them.

    1. Dearest Christina,
      This is the season for finding mushrooms in nature—at the end of the growing cycle. Only mushrooms can digest the lignine and wood parts and with that they close the cycle.
      Fascinating to watch them! You're clever for not even touching them.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  13. Pois é, vivendo e aprendendo, eu nunca tinha visto!!
    Jamais imaginei que cogumelos alimentavam-se assim!
    E vocês são mestres nesse conhecimento, maravilha!
    Abraços!!

    1. Prezados Taís,
      Sim, os cogumelos fecham o ciclo na natureza porque são os únicos que podem digerir partes lenhosas. Um belo sistema nossa Mãe Natureza!
      Abraços,
      Mariette

  14. Oh, I've never seen that before. These are interesting pictures. Sometimes fungus can be poisonous, so be careful. : )
