Wild Mushrooms

As gourmands ("foodies" to today's generation) know, mushrooms are a fungus/fungi. I try very hard to put that thought out of my mind when I am enjoying grilled mushrooms with a steak or some other dish. I found these wild mushrooms growing in my neighbor's yard, under a mostly dead bush, but with lots of shade and protection... which probably accounts for their vigorous growth. That, and the recent rains we have had. I am impressed with their petal-like shape, rendering them like a lovely white flower.
