A mushroom tour of 2014

I love mushrooms.  We had a plethora of them sprouting up all over our yard and woods this year.   Most of them are probably not edible, but they are beautiful.  My favorite edible wild mushroom is the morel, which sadly did not appear for me anywhere last spring. I looked everywhere.  In early summer we had a few random mushrooms sprout up but in mid to late August we had tons everywhere.  Below are some pictures of the various mushrooms we found this year.
