Late Afternoon Walk

It was 82 F here in northern Michigan this afternoon, and this summer, that was news indeed! Dave and I went for one of our customary rambles along a woodland trail and encountered these curiously red capped mushrooms (toadstools?). These were all different specimens clustered in the same area along the trail and measured about 2.5 inches across the cap.

This is neither knapweed nor bee balm, so I don’t know what it is except quite lovely !

How gray can a mushroom get?

Note size by comparing the toe of my walking shoe:

Several shitaki-esque mushrooms were growing from this decaying tree stump:

They were quite large as shown by this comparison to Dave’s hand:
