Morel mushrooms are considered a gourmet delicacy by many people. They only appear in wooded areas for a couple of weeks in the early Spring. This was the first I have sighted this year. Sliced up and fried, they are quite tasty.

I have not been able to identify this particular fungus. It looks like terry cloth.

Lichen is a composite organism that is a symbiotic relationship between a fungus and a green algae. Some cultures have used lichens as a food source, but I think you’d have to be pretty hard up to resort to this. Some lichens have medicinal uses as well as the making of perfumes and dyes.

A nice collection of fungus…
