A Mushroom in Wonderland


"This here ought to have been a red rose-tree, and we put a white one in by mistake." The gardeners told Alice while busily painting the roses red.

This is one mushroom that I have met this morning. I wonder whether it is a brown one that is being painted white.

That is interesting, a white mushroom, as white as Snow White will stand out in the dark forest like a white LED.

Or could brown, the manly brown, be a favourite of the Queen? This Snow White is becoming rugged and down-to-earth.

And no fairy tale to the Queen, for she will scream, "Off with your head! Off----"

Hello, Rainfield! Your mushroom photos are always amazing captures. Maybe Snow White is having this brown mushroom painted white. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.

The off your head part actually took me into visualizing :)
Captivating shot! Wondering how real discrimination was even in the classic tale!

If the lovely white ruffled edge is painted, then the painters are doing a very artistic job... and I think they should do nothing else. (Sometimes Art is knowing when to stop.) If those mythical painters do that, then they are definitely artists, not the kind of painters who were 're-modeling' those white roses bushes. I am neither kind of painter, but I admire good art and craftsmanship when I see it. (I admire your blog!)

The mushroom looks like someone squirted Elmer's glue around the edge. I am going to see the new Alice movie when it comes out next week. I am excited.
