Cheers

That is no reason not to cheer after a long hike, and I would like you to join me. Just sit down, relax yourself, get some fresh air, and you can have my cups. They are not big, but good enough to ease the craving for drink, "whereby nature is a vessel to which mortals drinks for inspiration- Salitype".

I am so cheerful to find myself hiking along with a big kingdom of mushrooms, and the discovery of cup mushrooms tops up the wonder further.

I know, you may say they are a pair of ears instead and trying to listen to our conversation, but I would like to let you know: "I can hear the ladies now. Those ears are just like my husband’s – growing on dead wood"- WiseAcre.

Anyhow, there are still many reasons for us to get cheer up.

Happy working!!

Have a good day.

These are wonderful little mushrooms. I took my girls on a mushroom hunt last week. We found dozens of different kinds, including a couple of large 'cup mushrooms' similar to these, only white instead.

Rainfield, those orange coloured mushrooms are beautiful and they do look like ears. Do you tell them your secrets so that they can store it for you? Lastly thank you very much for your kind words and well wishes on my blotanical nomination. I appreciate it very much. Mine is only a wild shot (ikan bilis) against all the other great blogs there.

George said...

Wonderful pictures of the mushrooms and they really do look like ears. But I'm not sure I like the talk of husband's ears growing on dead wood!

Ayie said...

cup mushrooms you said? This is my first time seeing 'em =) and yes it looks like ears

Ratty said...

I thought they looked like ears too. You got great shots of these little cups. I wonder what they hear when we walk through the woods.

Kirigalpoththa said...

Wonde4rful discovery!

John | English Wilderness said...

I love to see fungi, they often add some interesting colours to the scene. However I'm no good at recognising the different types :-(

Harumi said...

Wow.. their colors and shapes don't even resemble ordinary mushrooms. And they look a lot like our clay lamps. Great discovery Rain!

PS: You seem to be fond of wise quotes.. =D

Gallicissa: I am a little slow during the trekking, that's why I see something that people do not see.

Mom: I visited your blog, I saw your girls and the big size white mushroom. Thanks for your visit.

Bangchik and Kakdah: Maybe they will place some mosquito larvae inside and summon those mushrooms. lol.

Tabib: Cheers.

Icy BC: Hope this positive energy do help you in whatever way.

Autumn Belle: Your achievement makes me feeling so proud. I'll tell this to those mushrooms, this is not a secret. Cheers.

George: Sorry!! You may not be the one with "the husband's ears growing on dead wood".

Ayie: Yes, they are cup mushrooms, if they grow further, they will look like the world cup (be it for soccer, football, or.....)

Ratty: They will keep all those saying and, wait for one day, we will see them in the media. lol.

Kirigalpoththa: I'll listen carefully to confirm their laughter in my next trip. I'll tell later.

John: Me too. It make growing more and more white hairs in order to ID them.

Harumi: You better be careful on what to say, I may like to quote you later. lol.

Mei Teng said...

Haha...cute little cups that look like ears?

Ginnymo said...

What strange little mushrooms. They do resemble ears..Ha! Ears on a dead log???? Ha! Ha! You are funny Rain!!

Heather Dugan ("Footsteps") said...

What a wonderful find! I am "cheered!"

WiseAcre said...

I can't name those but they are similar to 'eyelash cups' I find. Same color but the eyelashes on the ones you found are not as large and white instead of dark.

Cool find. Now is a good time to find cup, slime and some other odd shrooms. (at least here in NNY - Ratty should get off the path and look at rotting wood where he is too)

Pacey said...

Wow, they look like some ears and your shots are just awesome...

rainfield61 said...

Mei Teng: Haha, I wonder why your comment ended with a question mark.

Ginnymo: Not only me, many more who are funny have inspired me.

Heather Dugan: It is glad to know; me too.

WiseAcre: It is a good challenge from you. There must be more species out there.

Pacey: Is it just because I am awesome as well??? lol.

Tes said...

very true, there is no reason not to cheer after a long hike, especially having captured these interesting and amazing photos.

Glennis said...

Cheers. Such sweet little cup mushrooms, only a small drop of liquid but nice.

VanillaSeven said...

How, is that a mushroom rainfield?
This is the first time I saw this type. Thanks for sharing!

rainfield61 said...

Tes: I always hike silently, they are not able to eavesdrop anything. Heeheehee..

betchai: very true, there is no reason not to cheer after a long hike, especially having captured these interesting and amazing photos.

Glennis: Only a small drop of liquid but enough to cheer you up for the whole day. How to call this liquid?

VanillaSeven: Of course, these mushrooms are not fake but really real.
