Bright orange mushrooms, probably a species of Laetiporus (mushroom lovers are invited to correct this identification), growing on a log in Frick Park. Behind them, Orange Touch-Me-Nots (Impatiens capensis) are blooming in almost exactly the same shade of orange.

City Deer

Posted in Cemeteries, Nature by Dr. Boli on August 24, 2014
